Is this enough?
Trying to put together a computer for my brother with spare parts I got.
No overclocks on this build
Mobo: ASUS P5G41T-M LX
CPU: Intel q6600
Memory: 4 gb Corsair Dominator
GPU: XFX HD 6850
Will this power supply be able to handle this?
Corsair CX430 V2 430w
that video card needs Minimum 500 Watt Power Supply Requirement so I would say a 600watt psu would be good something like this Newegg.com - CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Should run fine, used about 10 of these in small builds with 5770's and down without a problem.
I wouldn't do it. A q6600 eats a good amount of power and a 6850 is decent enough with its consumption, but personally I wouldn't run it on less than a quality 500w psu. It may run fine, but for how long is the better question.
It should be barely enough if my experience with a 375W PSU, Core i5 2500k, and GTX 550Ti is any indication. Expect a loud fan and very warm PSU exhaust if you load the GPU and CPU. HINT: Poorer efficiency due to 80+ standard
I'd go a bit higher. A 430 can run it, but a 550 or so would do it more efficently and cooler as people have mentioned.
I'm trying to keep this build as cheap as possible. My spare parts are the hd 6850, q6600 or e6850, and 4gb Corsair Dominator RAM.
All I need now is the HDD, Case, motherboard, and PSU.
Well you can get away with it but just remember You will be running that PSU hot.
I'd say saving money on power supply isn't the greatest idea ever. It's one thing that can potentially damage anything in your computer. It's too bad power supply is being overlooked. I agree with everyone here, go with minimum 500W and recommend 600W. It would save you money in the long run.
