I believe that the R9-280X requires a 750w PSU to be in the computer as a minimum recommended PSU. This is according to the specifications listed for the card and while some will tell you that it can be run on a 650w PSU , when you add the FX 8350 at 4.7ghz you will need the 750w PSU.

What did the total watts draw come to ? Did the calculator say that this was at idle or under load ?

Yes 650watts, from Corsair (XFX, Antec, Seasonic) will power any SINGLE GPU..... with ease.

System: 200watts
GPU 250watts
Total: 450watts...........

I'm running CrossFire R9 280X's, with a Corsair HX850. System draws ONLY 600--650watts gaming.... so you will be fine

NOTE: AMD recommends 750watts Single AND 1000watts for a CrossFire pair, I believe they are trying to account for all the JUNK power supplies that "over rate" their power output with that 1000watt number....

It says 90% under load.
