What you have listed will run on 350 watts, BUT you have not mentioned a graphics card. A high powered graphics card will kick your wattage to a higher level than 350. I would think about a 500 watt like this to be sure you have enough.

I personally like the PC power and cooling PS's as they are high quality that will last for years.

Hi there,

I agree with SRX660's comment. PC Power and Cooling are a very good manufacturer. For a little cheaper option, you may wish to consider this Corsair PSU, it's a good quality unit as well.

Cheers

Hi there,

Do not bother running SLI with this graphics card. It would be far better to get one single, better card. The 9600GT is coming out soon, and should be a much better choice.

Something like this for a PSU would also be much better, considering your build is not high-end.
