Can my PSU handle a Sapphire Radeon VAPOR-X R9 290 4GB GDDR5 TRI-X OC Version (UEFI)?

My PSU is an Antec 620. Apparently the quality is good. But will it be enough for that "beast"?

Other specs:
I7 4790
H97 Killer
Corsair 16GB DDR3
SSD 256GB
HDD 500GB
And the usual components (dvd, wifi etc.)

And yeah, I do not intend to overlock.

I would say maybe if it is a 80+ gold PSU but I would change it to a 750W 80+ gold unit (seasonic being one of the best) is it possible probably especially since your not running a amd high watt cpu, I would say its not a good idea a gtx 970 or 980 would be a safe option though.

The efficiency rating of the unit has nothing to do with its reliability or power output. 80 plus is simply an efficiency rating. There are many bronze rated PSUs that are much more reliable and stable than gold rated units at the same advertised wattage. Build quality is much more important than 80 plus rating.

you can also make a build on pc parts picker with your parts and what you want in it and it will tell you the toal wattage and if it compatible.

yeah it should be fine, gaming for hours wouldnt cause the amount of watt to go up. it should be fine. i would eventually upgrade it tho bc using a high percentage of psu alot for elongated times causes it to ware out.
