Hello!
Will a Corsair 750W RM750x CP-9020092-EU be enough for an R9 295x2?

i7 6700k
16GB memory
XFX R9 295x2
Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD3
Kingston a2000 M.2 250gb
Toshiba 1TB 7200rpm
Arctic Liquid Freezer 360 Push Pull
NZXT Sentry LX
 
I read an article where an R9 295x2 was powered by a Seasonic Platinum Fanless 520 watt power supply :)
Can you link it? Look up reviews of the 295x2, it can peak at 500w itself and that doesn’t include the rest of the system. The trouble with pushing your psu too hard is if it fails you can fry anything connected to it. If you don’t care about the system then you can take the risk. If you want to minimise the chance of failure you want a psu with at least 20% headroom over the max the system could need.

Have a look at the Toms review Power Consumption: Introducing Our Equipment - Radeon R9 295X2 8 GB Review: Project Hydra Gets Liquid Cooling (tomshardware.com)

It’s your hardware at the end of the day. If you want to take a risk on it being ok then go for it. It comes down to your appetite for risk.
