  1. 850w is great for that card
  2. I would stick to quality brands such as Antec, Coolermaster V series, Corsair AX or HX series, EVGA Supernova G2 series, Seasonic or XFX.
    A 650W would be fine if it is a quality power supply.

    R9 290X requires 33 Amps on the 12v rail & a 600W PSU minimum

    Judging by Aerocool's other VP Pro units, they are lower rated on the 12v rail, so it's likely 700W in reality, and should do the job.

    However, if you can shell out the cash for such a great GPU, why skimp on the PSU ?
