Hello everyone, I have a seasonic 430eco PSU, I found a used RX570 on the internet, was wondering if I should go ahead and buy it. 

 

present setup:

i5 4460

8GB RAM (4*2)

GTX1050

 

On AMDs website, they say that 450W is recommended, but the GPU only draws 150W (well within the range of 396W that my 430wPSU is capable of pushing)

 

Additional info: 

1. Further down the line I plan on getting a i7 4770, as my i5 seems to be struggling with Battlefield 5. (power consumption of both CPUs is 84W)

 

2. (see image below) My PSU supplies 82W on the 5V rail, (been using it since 2015, haven't run into any sort of trouble with my 84W i5)

 

3. 12V 396W (18A+18A)

 

TLDR: I wanna buy an RX570, I have a Seasonic ECO430 (don't wanna buy new PSU) - won't buy RX570 if it's not recommended.

Should I just wait for a GTX1650? 

Also, can I buy the i7 4770? it draws 84W, but my PSU only supplies 82W on the 5V rail. 

I am using an i5 4460, which also draws 84W, running just fine.

Your current PSU is fine, just don't put it near vega.

most of your components take power from the 12v rail.

No, you should just think about replacing that PSU.

Would be better to replace the PSU with a better quality unit, the ECO is a budget unit suited for business PC's.

Yes I just learnt that lol, makes sense, I wonder why I even thought that my 4460 was drawing power from the 5V rail. Odd.
