Howdy! The specs below is what I currently have in my computer. I would like to upgrade my i3-6100 to an i5-6500, and I would also like to upgrade my GTX 750ti SC to a RX 480. First, I would like to know what I should upgrade first. I play AAA titles along with some lesser known games, I create videos using Sony Vegas Pro 13 and livestream using OBS. Secondly, I am curious to know if my Corsair 430M PSU will be sufficient in terms on Wattage. I already have been told countless times that it has been made with bad transistors and what not, so don't bother. Thank you very much.

I would get the RX 480 and then the i5...

The PSU is enough.

Its still one of the better out of the old CX series.

Its not going to hurt to get a better PSU whenever you can.. You can consider the newer CXM 450 or CXM 550.
