    The Corsair 430W should be able to run it without any problems. If you really feel uncomfortable, here's an alternative PSU.

    I would get a 450w or 500w PSU, I prefer spending a few more $ and knowing that I'm safe. AMD recommend to have a 450w PSU at least, so I'll go with that. Anyways, I don't know who told WildStyle* that ATI are not good for gaming, whatmore I'd always get an ATI before Nvidia, but is all a matter of what you like, so there's no point saying "this is better than the that"

    At the moment, ATI is on an equal footing with NVidia if not better, especially towards the aggregate gaming hardware market (as opposed to a select audience). The 5000 and AMD 6000 series are more-or-less just as good as the GTX400 series all the up to the high-end GPUs. On the other hand, NVidia has almost nothing new to offer to the mid-end market besides the GTS430, and that gets blown away by ATI's HD5670, which is also in the same $75~100 price range.
