    Default R9 290 Tri X OC and Thermaltake SMART 650W

    I purchased an R9 290, and a couple of new parts, for my PC a few weeks ago and I am starting to worry that my power supply is not enough.

    Specs:
    CPU - i5 4690k @ stock
    RAM - G.Skill Ripjaws Z @ 1600MHz
    GPU - Sapphire R9 290 Tri X OC
    Storage - 1TB WD Blue 7200RPM
    PSU - Thermaltake SMART Standard SP 650W 80+ Bronze
    Extra case fans - 2x Antec True Quiet 120mm

    Is this power supply sufficient for my build? I have had this PSU for one year and experienced one shut down about 10 months ago for an unknown reason. I do not plan on over clocking.

    It is more than enough.

    Yup. It should to OK. Even 550W would probably have done it
    No wonder it doesn't work! You installed the coils backwards
