Default Re: can I use a 430 watts PSU for GTX 460?

I would not recomend either since it would be boderline and nvidia recomends 450watts with 24amps on the 12v rails and if you want to overclock I would get something bigger.You can get a coolerMaster 650 watts for $70 and it has 52amps on the 12v rail for future up grades .but they have some 500watts for around $50 that would do the job.The power supply is one of the most important compoents since it can cause BSOD and freezeing and out of the blue rebooting if it is not getting enough power.It might work as long as you don't overclock ,but I would recomend getting something bigger with more amps on the 12v rail.
