    Maybe on a socket A system, but you'll need at least 400W on any K8 or socket 775 system. I'd recommend against a socket 939 system with a 350W PSU even if it were using onboard video. If it were using a 6800, I'd say a 480W PSU would be best.

    What about the rest of the components?

    Anyhow, I would suggest at least 400W with at least 25A on the 12V+ rail. And not a cheapie either. You get what you pay for.

    Both of my systems have three HDs (2 PATA & 1 SATA) and 2 writeable optical drives. I think you should look to at least a 420w+ PSU from a known name brand, such as Antec, TopPower, Enermax, etc. No harm in getting more than you think you'll need. Gives you overhead for future expansion.
