All depends on your hardware. You should have atleast a 300 if you are just running 1 HD and maybe a CD and CDRW and no casefans/lights. If you have plans for anything more than this then I would recommend that you just spring for the 450.

I had loads of problems with a 300w supply before although this was just a cheap one. Since upgraded to a enermax 435 and my system is soo much more stable. i am running

AMD XP2100+
2 7,200 rpm hdd
2 case fans
large heat pipe cpu cooler
two cd drives
and now where it counts lots of cards

Tv card
scsi card
sound card (with front bay)
network card
geforce 3 agp card

more usb ports (4)
with this amount of stuff i needed the extra power.
Dont forget amd reccommend a limit of 300w i would not suggest anything under 350w

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
