Im planning on building a computer with the Arctic Cooling Silentium T3 case (

XFX GeForce 7800GT 256MB GDDR3 eXtreme
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
MSI K8N SLI-FI, nForce4 SLI, Socket-939

Can the 350 PSU that comes with the case handle this system?

350 watts is probably enough, but that is usually the "minimum" recommended these days for a system with a single 7800GT...

(Personally, I'd feel more comfortable with a 500-600 watt quality PS)

You're link doesn't work. What other components? The number of HDD and cd/dvd drives makes a difference. Are you planning on SLI?

If it is a Seasonic, then it might work if you are just running a 2-3 drives (HDD, DVDRW and DVD/CD) and not in SLI. If you're SLI, then I would say no.
