Core 2 quad 3.0ghz, AMD 7850 2gb 1100mhz, 6gbb ram, 500w psu, 55" flat screen 1920x1280
Do you think the core 2 quad will kill the system?

FYI: this is my theoretical system, it currently has a 320w psu, 2.5ghz dual core and 4gb ram with an anti 6670 1gb. Before I plop down the cash, I wanna make sure It won't cripple the system.

I would not exactly purchase that power supply due to reliability. This is similarly priced like the Coolermaster.

This is my cart now, anyway I can lower the price without compromising performance, keep in mind I still haven't gotten the quad from amazon. http://i.imgur.com/hAEMuof.png

There isn't a whole lot to cut down in price. The advantage of this, is the power supply and graphics card can be used again in a new computer.

Here.  Same 12v output as that original low end Coolermaster.  Cheaper, more efficient, more reliable.

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

The 12V+ rail on that little CX430 is about 20 watts more (360 watt on the Coolermaster) than the 500 watt  PSU in your earlier post.  Just because a PSU is advertised as "500" watts don't mean much.

 

killerx525 suggested a very good PSU with 450+ watts on the 12v+.  Here, Newegg is having a sale:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=17-139-050&Tpk=17-139-050

 

Either that CX43O, CX500, or CX500M will do the job without breaking the bank.  No better budget PSUs out there.
