  1. Best answer
    First of all, only the 600W one has two 12V rails @ 22A, the 500W one has 19 and 20A. It should work, but if you don't already own this power supply, don't get it. This has much better build quality and is made by Seasonic.
  2. Single rail is better, but yes, 500W would be enough. For an inexpensive 500W PSU I'd recommend this one here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207013

    I'm not finding very good reviews on that Cougar, but that XFX has a 4 star (egg?) rating with 134 reviews, and is a single rail set up. If it's anything like their other power supplies, it's made by Seasonic, which is a very good brand.

    Edit: Looks like Eduello beat me to it, haha.

    Thanks for the recommendation but here in my country it's hard to find that psu I'm going to buy the cougar psu now that I know that it will work on the vapor X Cause I'm going to buy all the pc parts on the same store. The pcstore has a few powersupply to choose from so I think the cougar is the best one I can buy to work with r9 270x vapor X. I'll buy the graphics card and the powersuplly at the same pc store and have it test there so if there will be any problem with it they're the ones going to deal with it. Also they recommended the cougar psu for the r9 270x vapor X
  4. Are you sure that's enough wattage? i would buy a 600w one or even a 650w one if i were to buy an R9 270X
