I have a h97 mobo with a i5 4590 with a his hd 7950 boost. Have a couple questions. I plan on getting an evga 600 watt psu (idk how to link the exact model ) my first question is i want to overclock the gpu a bit, will this be enough watts? My second question is i plan on upgrading my gpu to a r9 290 will this be ok psu? Im on a budget and it would be awsome if i could keep it around 60 to 70 bucks for psu. While still being safe. Thanks

I would recommend a Evga B2 750 watt psu, its much better than the B1 series.

Everywhere i look says that 600 watts should be fine for an R9 290. =\

Sorry this is my last piece needed for my first build. Since its probably one of the most important parts i just dont want to screw up, and i want to future proof it without going overboard and keeping it within my budget.

This is a great PSU. Can't go wrong with it. https://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-220gs0650v1

This was suggested above. It's a good PSU too.

Thank you, guess i should spend 20 more than my original pick... do you think 750 watts for an i5 4590 r9 290 is overkill or just right?
