the minimum of power just one r9 290x is 600w

i have 2 r7 260x 2gb with fx 8350 and works so much good in BF4 on High.

think about that.

The TDP of a 290x is 290w, so you will be fine with that power supply. However unless you have multiple 2560x1600 displays, a single 290x should be sufficient. And yes, the 8350 will be fine.

No, there's no maybe about it. 290w x 2 = 580w, + 200w for CPU, motherboard, drives, and fans = 780w, which is within the capabilities of a quality power supply, which Corsair is.
