I have a microATX case with a PSU included that is 160W.

These are the power consumers:
AMDXP 2000+
MicroATX MB from Gigabyte 7VMKP
(including built-in LAN,Sound,4xUSB2.0)
RAM DDR266 256x2
CDRW 24x/8x/4x
Geforce Ti 4200 128 mb (OCed a bit)
Maxtor HDD 60Gb
Wingman gamepad
CPU fan and case fan etc..

Do you think a 160W can support all these? If not can a 250W support these? 250 is the maximum the company can reach for MicroATX, if not i guess i will have to get a new case then...

Plus i was gonna upgrade my cpu to around 2600+ with new cpu fan and case fan, attache my floppy drive, and a new cdrw/dvd combo drive.

what do u guys think i should do?

Here's a link to psu wattage calculator. Fill in ur data and it'll tell how big a psu you need. Most think it estimates on the high to be safe, but it'll give you a pretty good idea

I'd try it. After all, it is Micro ATX. Micro ATX isn't a power supply size, you're probably looking at SFX power supplies.
