  1. 650W if overclocking cpu and gpu.
    XFX 650 is a good choice.

    Don't go for any Corsair CX series. Their quality of capacitors used is not good for a gaming pc.
  2. One of these will suit your needs fine: ( i gave you non and modular choices) Do not cut corners on your PSU, this is the heart of your system. These will easily power your system without issues.

  4. That's a really nice deal, but you can get the supernova G2 750W for $85 which is also quite a good deal. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20750xr

    650W is enough for a single gpu build with overclocking.
    You can go for a 750/850W if you plan to add a second gpu.
  8. 650w is enough, and I would go with the XFX power supply. But if you want to have even more headroom for whatever reason, you can get the PSU I posted above: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220g20750xr it is a top notch power supply. But 750W isn't recommended if you plan to crossfire the r9 290.
