Hello,

I have this pc build :
MODO : Gigabyte 990XA
CPU : FX 8320 (no oc)
RAM :1X 8GB DDR3 1600MHZ
Cooler : CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO
GPU : Asus EAH5770 v2
1 X ssd Kingston
1 X HDD 500GB (3,5")
1 X HDD 1TB (2,5")
PSU : Corsair VS650
CASE : NZXT H440

and i am going to upgrade my GPU i found a Radeon R9 290X Asus DirectCU II OC Edition.

Is my psu capable of this GPU ?
 
Unless the OP runs stress tests to keep both the CPU and GPU 100% busy, the PSU is good enough. It's an entry level PSU made by Channel Well Technology and is basically the same as the CX and CXM. I wouldn't recommend buying it for such a system, but if the OP already has it, then he should seriously consider using it.
