I am building a new computer system, and I was wondering about the size of the power supply. I am building a system with more than likely the following:
Abit KR7A-133RAID
Athlon XP 1800+
512MB DDRRAM
S.B. Audigy MP3+
TDK VeloCD 40x12x48x CD-RW
Maxtor 60GB Hard Drive
Quantum 30GB Hard Drive
Iomega Zip Drive
MSI GeFORCE 4 Ti 4400
That is the basics. I am looking at an enermax case that include their 300W power supply (EG301P-VB). My Question is will the 300W power supply be enough for this? I really want this case, but I am not sure if the 300W supply is gonna be enough. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can probably get away with the 300W, but if you may want to consider a 350. Check out pricewatch and see if you can find the case w/o the power supply and just buy it separately.

What you are asking is basically "I have purchased near state of the art equipement including chip, vid card, mobo, multiple hardrives etc." Is a 40.00 ps going to power this. Do not skimp here. With your list a 350W will do, and a 400W allows room for possible further expansion/multiple fans.
