Is 650W PSU enough?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm planning to upgrade my gpu and cpu.
I'll probably grab a R9 280X (or 290/290x, depends on price), as for cpu, 8350 or similiar.
R9 280X needs 2x 8pin connectors, my PSU has 2x 6+2 pin connectors, that should be fine, i guess?
So the main thing is, power consumtion, will be 650w enough for 8350+R9280X?
PSU is Corsair TX650W.

Yeah, even if you overclock both of it.
