I would like to buy a psu for this system but I cant choose between the evga nex750g, the thermaltake smart se 630w or 730w and the corsair rm650 or 750.

corsair obsidian 250d
msi r9 290 gaming 4g
intel i5 4690k
gigabyte ga-z97n gaming 5
corsair h100i
2x4gb kingston hyperx fury 1600 mhz cl10
samsung 840 evo
seagate barracuda st1000dm003
2x corsair sp120 performance edition

I buy from mindfactory.de
I would like to go with the thermaltake because it's the cheapest one. It also has nice flat cables. Is it noisy or is it bad overall. If it is, which model of the two first would you prefer and what wattage?

Corsair RM 650 is more than enough. You could actually get by just fine with a RM 550. If you think there's a chance that you might Crossfire that R9 290 on down the road then I would get the RM 750.

As 64K mentioned, a quality 550W PSU should do the trick, a 650W could even run crossfire and if you're thinking of overclocking / overvolting both GPU's and CPU like crazy a 750W will work well.

What is your budget?

i am okay with Xfx Xtr 550w modular 80+ gold?
Yes. That is a good PSU for your needs if you're not going to Crossfire that R9 290.
