Calling Sapphire R9 280X Toxic owners...

What power supply do I really need? 750W is recommneded in the site but I have had varied responses- some have said this is overkill, some have said its not enough.

  1. 620W should be fine.
  2. Best answer
    600-650w is more than enough. I usually tell ppl to stick with seasonic, XFX, or corsair (AX/HX/TX series only). Here are some good choices:

    Non-Modular
    Power Supply: SeaSonic S12II 620W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply (£59.34 @ Amazon UK)

    Semi-Modular
    Power Supply: XFX 650W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (£62.98 @ Amazon UK)
  3. The SM XFX 650W is what I had in mind before, just wanted to clarify with a few more people

    The 280X pulls around 250W when gaming, 650W is more than enough.
  5. 750w of generic psu. a quality 550w psu would run your set. 600w-650w would be more appropriate since you have overclocking potential.an aftermarket cpu cooler will be needed, so make sure you have one!do you have a budget?

    650W is fine... I'd still get 750W just in case.
