I was wondering if I need a better power supply to overclock my CPU. I have a Corsair 430 watt power supply. I have a gtx 750 ti ftw.

Strongly agree. Wouldn't push it too much. But if you plan to, a 500-550 watt supply would be nice to have.

No but some one told me to buy one so I guess I should get one to overclock. Would I need a higher watt power supply than 430 watt to overclock a gpu also.

The 750 Ti doesn't use a lot of power and is very efficient. I believe a light overclock on the graphics card will be acceptable although if you would like to go overboard, upgrading your power supply would be very beneficial not only in terms of overclocking, but for overall system stability as well.

There's no way in heaven a 760k will bottleneck a 750ti!!!
If anything it will be the other way around - the 750ti is not that strong a card.
The cx430 is a decent PSU entirely capable of ovetclocking either or both those components as much as is practically possible.

Thank you so much I built this computer and I didn't know what was going on and if it was bottlenecking. I will definitely overclock both and I don't know if this matters but the 750 ti is a FTW edition. I know they overclock well.
