Hey all! I'm ordering my new setup tomorrow and wanted to make sure I had enough power for it. I'm getting a 500w PSU, but was wondering if I should make the jump to 650w. Here's the set up: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/bmnfCJ
I would for sure get a 650 watt psu.
yes you need at least 650w for the R9 290
