Yes, a CX430 or 450 would be enough.

cx430 is outdated. CX450M the upgraded version is much better.

I agree that the CX450M is the newer and better version. That being said, a cx430 would still work, and is not a bad supply.

Yes, however I'd get the newer one for peace of mind myself.

It would be plenty, though I would recommend going for CXM as it has better quality 12V rails which are less likely to cause issues and emit a more stable amount of power.

The older CX series also has CXM...... The M just means its semi modular.

No, the CXM units also have higher quality 12V rails don't they?, and of course I'm talking about newer not older.

No one can assume you are talking of the new one if you dont specify.. remember there are new and old CXM..

CX450m or CX550M will be more then enough. CX600 is already an old psu.

Yes but I would strongly reocmmend the new CXM series which is miles better.

They are based on totally different platforms. Iirc the CXM is based on the same platform as the RM series and it has much better performance and better build quality.

Such is the case with the CX430M, CX500M, the CX600M (all discontinued), and their respective CX counterparts. Vagabond specified the new CXMs: the CX450M, CX550M, and CX650M which boast a new platform with DC-DC converters for generating the +5V and +3.3V rails and come with a 2 year longer warranty and 10C higher full power rating.

The CX's are non modular and the CXM's are semi-modular. You want the new, gray CXM's. They're only a tiny bit more expensive and are much better.

You'll want one of the newer, gray series CXM power supplies. If you can provide a link to your parts list, I can calculate how much wattage you need.
