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.

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-220g2075... it is a top notch power supply. But 750W isn't recommended if you plan to crossfire the r9 290.
