I was thinking the same thing tbh, didn't want to push anything else past the 7850 on this PSU. I also usually settle on 95w AMD CPUs as well to be safe. So agreed, I'll buy a new PSU first. Someone else on here was telling me that my CPU would be fine if I just get a better video card such as the 7950 or 7970 or wait for the new Radeon cards like you said. Should I eventually also get one of the latest AMD CPUs or am I wasting my money on them and instead should go Intel (definitely don't think I could afford a whole new rig right now though)

if the steam machine can power an i7 and titan on 400 watts
then surely you can power a 7950 on 460 watts

I have this PSU running with a GTX 660 and an A8 AMD Quadcore. You should be fine.

This "460w" is only safe up to 400w.
However, it's always junk.

7950+6300 probably eats less than 300w under load.

Thanks for the help everyone. I have another question though, will I notice improvement on modern games (e.x. BF4) with the 7950 even with my FX-6300? I know AMD processors are bashed for being inferior to Intel.

Your PSU is actually a rebrand of the 400w Variant.

Also I have no idea but I doubt it (I own this PSU, don't think it has enough connectors).
