    Well I just bought a new case. and it came with a 300 watt PSU. I am just wondering if I should replace it with one that has more power or is 300 watts enough?

    I am putting into it:

    Gigabyte 8IPE1000 Pro 2
    Pentium 4 2.8C or maybe a 2.6C
    Seagate 80GB harddrive
    ATI 9700 Pro
    SoundBlaster Live 5.1
    DVD-Rom
    CD-Burner.

    and I currently have 2 case fans and I might be getting another one. so I might end up having 3 case fans (not including my PSU's fan)

    is 300 watts enough? I don't plan on overclocking anything at all.

    No 300 watts probably won't be enough using that video card. Your 3D graphics will more than likely hiccup when the PSU gets hot and if its a real cheap brand name PSU you might even get restarts. I've even had this type of problem using up to 450 watt cheap PSU's like Real P.C. power, Q-Max, and Powmax brand (the Q-max brand was very unstable). Trust me there all garbage.
