    Well as Sazar said in the other thread that you made reference to you should be fine with your current setup. But if it was my system I would think about getting a larger power supply to make sure I've got enough power. All of the computers I've got have at least a 300 watt power supply and one as a 400 watt power supply and its got 4 case fans, cpu fan, hard drive fan, a 60 gig 7200 rpm hard drive, 2 cd burners one at 24x and the other at 40x, dvd-rom, and a soundblaster media bay.
