Hey guys i just upgraded my GPU to this MSI R9 290 but read some mixed reviews about the power it needs.

is my PSU have enough power? I really hope so because i literally just got it and threw the box away so now i dont think its possible returning it at Newegg.com

thanks!

It will work, but see if you can get a 650w. Maybe an EVGA NEX 650G.

Is that serious? I was sort of planning to. How much watt you think it adds to do so?

If you want to overclock the gpu and cpu, I would get at the minimum 650 watts.
