Need Advice building a File Server

I am building a file server with the HighPoint RocketRAID 2320 pci-e and 8 WD 400gig HD. DFI LanParty mobo with athlon64 X2, 1gig ram, 1-dvd rom, 1 floppy and ati x550, and a SATA system HD. I was wondering what power supply should i get for this setting? I am afraid i have too many hard drives and i might not have enough power. I was thinking of getting a 600Watts but is that enough? Thank you!

  1. 600W power should be plenty.
    Each HD only uses approx 10W of power.

    Power usage for HDD

    CPU and graphics are the most power hungry devices.

    P.S> Make sure you have good cooling installed :wink:
