  1. Best answer
    Corsair VS 650 has two PCI-E power connectors (fit either 6 pin or 8 pin).
    R9 270X requires two 6 pin connectors.

    From that point of view you are OK, but the Corsair VS series are not great quality.
    Really you only need a 520W power supply or greater, but a better quality unit would be good.
    Some recommendations:
    Antec HCG 520W - Very good quality 80 plus bronze rated unit
    Seasonic G 550 - Great quality 80 plus gold rated unit
    Corsair CX 600 - Good quality 80 plus bronze rated unit (Not as good as either of the units above, but OK)

    Processor (CPU) up to 125W
    Radeon R9 270X = 180W
    Other components = 50W
    Total = 355W
    Choose power supply based on 70% of rated power at full load
    355 / 0.7 = 508W

    The power supply you have is able to run your card without problems.
    Corsair don't make bad power supplies, the worst that will happen is that this power supply will not last as long as a better quality power supply. The supply is also not as efficient, so it will draw more power at the wall than a better unit.
    If you already have the VS 650, don't worry about getting a new power supply.

    http://www.corsair.com/en/media/cms/manual/corsair-psu-spec-table-091813.pdf

    the above pdf says that its efficiency is above 80 % at all loads but only in 230 v ac hence cant be certified for 80 plus
