I have the following components:
I7 3770k (not overclocked)
R9 290 (reference)
2TB HDD
7 or so LED fans
Sound blaster Z sound card with drive bay
CD drive bay
16GB corsair veng RAM (2x8)

I currently have a corsair hx650 gold PDU that I'd like to use but I'm not sure if I'll need more power, Ive heard the GPU consumes up to 350w of power.

Should I get a new one? Or will 650 work for heavy BF4 playing?

The recommended PSU size is 600w with your setup so the PSU you have will be fine. Its also a good quality PSU So you wont be overtaxing it.
