what power supply should I use?

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?

  1. It will be enough.
  2. You have an excellent power supply that provides plenty of power for your system. No need to upgrade.

    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.
