    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
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005&Tpk=650TX

    best PSU for what you have ATM..... =)

    has all the plugs you need and more
  12. 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.
