Default New GPU with PSU?

I was wondering whether if I was to upgrade to this GT 430 : KFA2 GT 430 1GB DDR3 64bit VGA DVI HDMI PCI-E Low.. | Ebuyer.com, would it run on this PC:

PSU: 600W, FSP >> PC Power Supply >> ATX 12V ver.2.01 >> FSP600-80GLN
CPU: Core2 Quad Q8200
RAM: 4 sticks DDR2
and 1 HDD and 1 optical drive

I will be removing a GT 120 to make room for this as well.

Thanks,

For sure it'll run.

600W runs gtx 580's!

It was just someone mentioned it might not have the correct amperage or something,

I'm hoping its "or something" or they need to do some research.

Your psu has 4 15Amp rails, for about 57A actual... A drooled over Crsair 650hx only has 54

Youre just fine
