    Hey there guys, i wanna kno if the Seasonic S12II 430W PSU will be enough to power a GTX 560 NON TI video card?? The PSU is rated at 85 plus bronze and has 30A on the +12V Rail, will this be enough? Rest of my system is : i3 540 + 8GB DDR3 RAM + 2 1TB HDDs.
    Also, is the Corsair CX500 V2 a good PSU? they both cost the same but there are many users who say that the CX500 V2 dies very soon.. Is this ture? Help me out please!

    S12II-430 will be enough, but you won't have enough headroom if you want to overclock your CPU and or GPU.

    CX500V2 is good PSU, definitely better than CX500. I think "many users" who said that CX500 is prone to failure is using CX500, not CX500V2.
    The V2 is better than V1. Corsair use better transistors for the active PFC circuit and also better +12v rectifiers so they can achieve better voltage regulation and 80+ certification for this V2 unit.

    Its enough for the system but if you have plans to upgrade soon you might want higher capacity PSUs, because its near the limit
