mussyo,if you look on ebay you can find some Zalman CNPS 9700 and 9900s for cheap, 9700s I were going for about 20-30USD, 9900 going for 45-50USD

Im positive, you cannot compare your PSU to that Corsair..... It's like comparing a Ford Pinto to a Corvette :D 

52A on 1 rail is enough for a HD4890 ... and still have power to spare...... ;) 

You have nothing to worry about, here is a tool so you can see for your-self.....

CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V

VX550 would be fine, TX/HX 750/850 if you want to go CF.

Mugen 2 is the best cooler for the price. CCF and S1283 are also good for the price.

Best overall would prolly be Megahalems or lapped+washer modded True.
