Default 7800GT with Antec TPII 430W PSU?

Will the Antec TPII 430W have enough power to run a 7800GT? Newegg says it needs 450W. I'm guessing that they are talking about average PSUs, but Antec is a good one, so might it have enough power?

Hmm, well by looking at your system, and seeing as you only have one optical drive and one hard drive, you may be on the safe side.

However, you are OCing your system quite a lot, and I'd imagine you will and will want to do the same with your video card.

To be on the safe side and leave room for newer components in the future, I'd buy a Antec TP2 550W.

Make sure it has a 12v rating of 26a. This is very important, Im having the same problem finding a PSU with at least 400w and 26a rating.

MSI K8N Neo4 nForce4 Mobo
AMD 3500+ @ 2.53 GHz
G.skill 1 GB RAM @ DDR460
1 (will be 2) NEC CD-RW/DVD-RW/DVD-DL drives
