Is a EVGA GS 650 watt good enough for a R9 390 and AMD 8350? thanks

I looked it up for a little bit and couldn't find anything from a manufacturer on the PSU reccomendation for that card but from what I gather in forums... 650W for a low quality PSU or 600W if it's a good quality one.

Try this with your build though, this site tends to be pretty good http://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator

Hope that helps a little.

Unfortunately, all power supply calculator over estimate. By a lot too. 650 is enough for an 8350 and a 390.

The EVGA GS 650 is a good power supply. Nothing special though.

OP, get the EVGA G2. It is a better power supply and worth the money. If you already have the GS don't bother returning it.

I mean the video card, not the power supply.
