I am gonna buy a GTX 650 Ti Boost 1GB..... I need to upgrade my PSU too.
Is Corsair CX430 PSU enough for a GTX 650 Ti Boost or should i go with CX500???

I am also going to upgrade my CPU cooler from Stock to Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo.

 

My PC Specs are:

Intel Core i3 540 @ 3.06GHz

Intel DH55TC mobo

Kingston 2x2GB Ram @ 1333MHz

Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD

It should be enough but i would get a 500w just for piece of mind and if you want to add a soundcard or raid card or something

A 430/450W PSU should be more than enough considering your specs. You'd have enough headroom left in case you wanted to OC your CPU(only with BCLK and probably on a better mobo?)/GPU.

 

As for the CX series, even though i haven't had one myself, the reviews are non-existing and the opinions vary (some are satisfied with it, some complain about the coil-whine, some say the wattage is a bit lower). Try looking into some XFXbeQuiet!Seasonic (or any other Seasonic rebranded PSUs - just like the XFX one). Very important is to read the reviews, and not just one of them, read as many reviews as there are on a single product cause that's the only way you can make an informed decision.

A 450w will be enough for that system, but if you feel safer with the 500w then get that. :)

For a single 650 ti boost, a 430 watt PSU is more that you'll ever need with room to OC if ever you be planning to get something greater than your current i3. 

For a dual 650 ti Boost in SLI however, you might want to look at 600 watt psu. :) 

 

Btw upgrading you CPU  cooler wont matter as much unless you really max out your temps, though cooler components = less power used.

500W is more than plenty to have some future upgrades.

 

430W is fine for Overclocking and adding small things (HDD, SSD, ect...)

I run a 450W XFX model with an OC FX 6300 and an OC 650ti also. 450 is easily enough,

Either will be fine, but for upgradability I'd choose the CX500.

I would not go for the CX Series at all xD

 

This is on sale for the same price as the CX500, it's better quality as well.  Pretty much a steal.

That is a pretty nice deal. More wattage and better quality for the same price!

450 watts is the recommended wattage rating for a system with that card. This comes straight from Nvidia. Also get something with a minimum of 24 amps on the +12V rail.

430 should be more than enough because you are only running i3.
