    So far the system look spretty good, I'd probably get 512mb of ram though, It's not that much more expensive and it'll apy off as 512mb of ram seems to be XP's sweet spot. (and hell games like everquest now want to require it lol)

    Looks good. Go with at least a 350w power supply.

    well back to the original question, i'd agree with at least 350W. 400W if you plan to expand in the future.
