    I'm running my Radeon 9800 XT on a 300W PSU without any problem at all, they're not a power hungry card. Your 330W PSU should be ok for you at the moment.

    Some quality low wattage PSU's will live for some time but the strain will eventually catch up with them.

    That was odd, there was only one post when I left the site yesterday. :?

    Admittedly my system is not over the top, nForce2 motherboard, Athlon processor, single HDD, DVD rewriter etc, but it all works fine. My PSU isn't even branded, it's just some basic generic model. If someone is buying a new PSU, then they should consider a decent 400W + unit, given the seemingly power hungry products that are being released at the moment. Personally I'm happy to stick with my existing PSU until I see what develops on the ATX/BTX front.
