Capstone 550w enough for this R9 290?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Looking at driving my new 1440P Qnix at 120hz, so I am just checking my bases and making sure my PSU is good for a 290.

You shouldn't have any issues. I will say though that a more powerful PSU will be a lot less stressed and will FOR SURE be enough power...but either way you're fine!

Hope this helps! thumb.gif

I was thinking that 45.5A/gold rated on a single rail was pretty good.

Exactly...you're fine. Power supply is awesome. Wouldn't worry at all.

You're fine. A 290 pulls around the same wattage as a 780 Ti and I've had no issues.
