XFX Pro Series Black Edition 850W PSU 80 Plus Gold

I'm sure it'll be ok @ stock clocks and voltage on the card. Also leave your cpu at stock until you can get the new psu.

The power supply is not going to blow up, your system will just shut down if the load is too much. Just FYI incase.

Stock everything, you'll be ok to run the system as normal.

But what if he lowers the mhz of the GPU? Then it should consume less power...

i think that the PSU would be just OK, the R9 290x uses about 270w on the 12V rail
intel core i7 4770K
