I'm currently ordered my parts and here is the part list http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Kimchi/saved/9TtNnQ My friend said pcpartpicker wattage estimate is inaccurate so can someone tell me if CX430 80+Bronze power supply is good enough for an 6300 and r7 265

It can run it, ya... But it's not a good idea... without over clocking, get at least a 500w. If you may oc or upgrade to a better gpu later, get at least a 600w.

You never want to run a psu close to its max rating... It costs more in energy bills due to lower efficiency, gets hotter, fan gets faster and louder, and internal components don't last as long, which leads to potential death of far more than just the psu. Your friend is right also, the estimate on this site and most others is not usually too accurate.

I'm not over clocking, and thanks for information
