    OK, I am getting an Asus A7N8X Deluxe and 1 gig (2x512) PC 2700 RAM put in my case. I am keeping everything else. My specs are below. Will 300 watts PSU be enough to power it sufficently?? Or do I need to get another power supply. I am having someone else put in my motherboard and RAM as I don't know how to do it, so do I need to up grade my PSU while I am at it??
    Here are my specs:
    System Specs: ATX generic case with Antec 550 watt power supply. ASUS A7N8X Deluxe Motherboard. Western Digital 7,200 RPM 40 gig IDE Hard Drive.(NTFS- file system) AMD Athlon XP 2600 processor.(standard fan and heatsink-Thoroughbred Core-standard speed-NO OVERCLOCK) 1 gig of Samsung DDRAM(PC 2700- 333 mhz....2-512mb sticks running in dual channel mode).Ati Radeon 8x 9600 XT (8x is enabled on motherboard). Soundblaster Audigy 2 sound card. Motorola sb 5100 cable modem (Insight Communications-Cable Connection) BenQ 16x DVD- RECORDER.(records -R/-RW or +R/+RW and CD-R formats) LG 52x32x52 CD Burner. Zip 100 internal drive and a generic 3.5 floppy drive. Windows XP Professional Operating System. I also have a HP Deskjet 3520 inkjet printer and a KDS X Flat 17 inch CRT monitor.

    It wouldn't hurt.
    I run a 500w, and a 480Bw in my newest systems.
    Although I do have 350's running my other older systems.
    I don't run all of the extra's that you have though in the 350's.

    Personally I would get a 400w at least.

    Well I just purchased a 500 watt power supply NEW off ebay for 29.00 total with shipping! I think that should take care of any problems I would have with power!
