So I am planning my dream computer (for my price range) and this is what its shaping up to be (unless athlon gets some decent PCI Express motherboards soon):
Case ( Raidmax 268 ATX Mid-Tower Case w/350W Power Supply Black )
Power Supply ( 500 Watt Power Supply )
Processor ( [939-pin] AMD® Athlon-64 3200+ CPU w/ Hyper Transport Technology )
Processor Cooling ( Certified CPU Fan and Heatsink + 2 Extra Case Fans )
Motherboard ( [939-pin] Asus A8V-Deluxe w/LAN, 7.1 Sound, IEEE-1394, USB 2.0 8x AGP Motherboard )
Memory ( 1024 MB [512MB X2] DDR-400 PC3200 Memory Module Geil or Major Brand )
Video Card (ATI Radeon X800-XT 256MB DDR3 w/DVI + TV-OUT 8x AGP Video )
Hard Drive ( 80 GB HARD DRIVE 80 GB 7200 RPM Ultra ATA-100 Hard Drive )
CD/DVD Drive ( 16x DVD-ROM Drive - Sony Black )
CD-RW/DVD-RW Drive ( 52x32x52 CD-RW Drive Black )
Sound Card ( Creative Lab Sound Blaster Live! 24-bit 7.1 )
Speaker System ( 600W PMPO 3 PCS Super Bass Subwoofer Speaker System )
My question is whether a 350w power supply is enough or should I got for the 500w. The money difference isnt that big but there there isn't much of a point in buying it if i don't need it. Thanks for any help.

Enermax makes a fine range of power supplies. Of course the Fortron Source 400W has about the same output.
