Hello boyz ! I want to buy a new PSU,due to the fact that mine is getting older and older,and im buying a new GPU.My humble question is the following: is the COOLERMASTER G650M RS650 PSU enough for my setup ? (650 W)
which is : 8 GB ram DDR3 1800 MHz
i7-4790K @ 4.00Ghz
ASUS-STRIX GTX 980 (this is the one im buying right now)
MSI Z97 MPOWER AC motherboard.

Also,i would be really envigorated if you guyz could give your opinions about the GTX 980 versions. I decided that im gonna buy the STRIX,cuz it has one of the best cooling + is the second most silent.

Thank you in advance

Yes its more then enough wattage.
But the Cooler Master GM is not all that great so if you can spend more you really should.

If you cant the GM is an okey option.
Last why are you buying a GTX 980 now? hope its a second hand card and not a new card you are buying.

650 watts is enough for your setup.

The Strix version of most cards is good and really well reviewed. A quick Google or Youtube search would probably get you a bunch of 980 Strix reviews.

Side bar, are you getting quite a deal on the 980? My understanding is that the GTX 1070 matches or bests the 980 in most cases. Just make sure you're not overpaying for last year's card when this years card is just coming out.

I'm buying one because that's the most me / my parents can spend on a card,and mine is not working right now. Im studying as a mechatronical engineer,i have my finals,my life is full of **** you know,and i would really like to play some video games

but i can't,because my recent GPU(ATI HD 7950) has given up for good. So i really want one right now,and i can't afford a more expensive one.
Also,i just want my PSU to serve me for years,im not gonna overclock,i just want it to work properly. Do you think this PSU can do it for mE?

The GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 has just come out so buying a new GTX 980 now would not be the best idea when you can get a second hand one really cheap.
Either get a GTX 1070 or get a second hand GTX 980 dont get a brand new GTX 980.

750 watt minimum does not mean you need a 750 watt PSU however stange that might sound but there is a reason for that.
Why the AMD and Nvidia power requirements are wrong

When they say 750 watt minimum you can translate that to 540 watt.
