Is there software that will calculate how much power I use?

Is the 350W I have enough for:

Athlon 64 3400+
2xSata WD 200GB each RAID 0
1 EIDE 250 Maxtor for backup and home DV files
ATI 9600 128MB
2GB dual Channel RAM
SOYO mobo socket 939
2 DVD burners, best is 16X dual layer (only use one at a time)
Creative Soundblaster Audigy 2ZS with internal breakout box

Is there any software that will tell me how much juice I'm using up already?

    I addded up the hardware in my system and it came to 466 watts
    and have a 450w powersupply....

    Your power supply could be strained and run hot. If that is the caes, I would replace it.

    the calc gives ratings when ur system is under 100% load. everythign is running @ 100% if the PSU isnt an issue there is no point in fixing it.
