The minimum for a basic machine with a cdrom + cdrw drives shouldn't need more than 350W PSU. However, if you have anything more than this, you should be looking to upgrade the PSU.
It's also a good idea to use a separate power cable for the monitor. i.e plug it straight into the wall socket rather than putting it into the box.

As many as you can throw at it. Nice to have you aboard P4 Lines.

Why? The extra connection on the PSU doesn't put any load on the PSU. It's branched just inside the shell of the PSU.

350w minimum, 400+ preferred. Make sure it has the extra +12v P4 mobo connectors as well (the little square one).
