    I just ordered a 430W power supply (Corsair CX430 V2) for my new build, and I realized that it provides only 1 PCIe connector whereas the Radeon 7870 I want requires two. Will my card work properly without the second connector?

    Get an adapter (molex to PCIe), it'll be fine unless you have an extremely power hungry CPU
