    Hey I am looking to get either r7 370 or r9 380 sapphire. But, I only have 460 Psu. Will it be enough to run either card.

    I want to be able the play all the new games with no lag but I don't mind if it doesn't run on ultra. I'd even be happy on medium if the fps were good. Thanks.

    I've been looking into it more and I could use some help deciding what card and psu to pick up for around 350.

    I have a intel core I7 3770 3.40ghz. 12gb of ram. I would aprechiate some recommendations on a psu and card if the ones I mentioned aren't good. I can spend about 350.

    While you don't need a 1000W unit, I would aim for at least a 600W unit, and not simply anything labled that. Go with Seasonic if at all possible, if not XFX (particularly the XTR line), Enermax, or Antec (like the Hi Current line). Any of these options up to 1000W units should be available well below $350 USD.
