    What Watt :rolleyes: PSU would I need for a system of this calibre? I need to know because the case i am getting already comes with a 300W PSU and a 350W EnerMax PSU costs £45 and that 300W PSU will go to waste. Is it really neccesary to have a 350W PSU in this system or is a 300W sufficient? Thanks :)
