    I would, but I'm on a 800-850 budget and will buy up to a $70 psu if needed.

    Here you go, a little over budget but an excellent quality PSU, that has silent eco mode. I have a similar one on my wife's PC. Even with it running you cannot hear it at all.

    Quote:
    Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

    AMD R9 390 and 390X - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550~600 Watt power supply unit.
    AMD R9 390 and 390X Crossfire - On your average system the cards require you to have a 800 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

    If you are going to overclock GPU or processor, then we do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina.

    I love it, its in my wife's PC and eco mode keeps the fan off, but like I said even with the fan on I had to put my head next to it touching it to hear it. Also just nice build quality, comes with a little canvas bag for the extra wiring and stuff. Good choice.
