Ive recently bought an XFX R9 280x and tried it on my 500w PSU but it didnt have enough pin connectors, so i went and searched for a solution on the internet for a recommended PSU. Some people recommended a 600w but the official website recommends a 750w+.

Heres the problem, the card requires a 6pin connector and an 8pin connector. Which PSU would be recommended for this card?

My current budget is €70.. roughly $105.
This one is 650w, are you sure it would run smoothly? :D

Specs...
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-6350 Six-Core Processor
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7750
RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengence
Motherboard: Asus M5A78L-M/USB3
Storage: 1TB Hitchachi
PSU:500w(not branded)

My location is Ireland.

That SeaSonic SS-850AM is out of my budget as it costs over €120 and the XfX 650W costs 100euro.

Would this one work? -> http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008RJZR40/ref=ox_sc...

Yea, it will work, but the CX series are notorious for less than high quality caps. Go for this if you can swing it. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1750x...
