So i just bought a gpu (r9 280x) and i realized that the min power supply is 750! And i have a 650 watt! My psu is pretty good and my mother board is ehhh. Should i cancel or just get it?

You'll be fine, that PSU luckily has a single 12v rail which means it can put up to the full 650 watts to supply the PCIE power connectors. The 280X doesn't draw anywhere near that much. Now with split rail PSU's there would have been a problem.

According to the part number, the oem for that Corsair is Seasonic. It should have no issues powering your system w/ R9 280x.
