Hi I am building a new system and planning to use Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 Allendale, I am not sure how power I really need, does anyone has a website that provide info with power consumption of parts? RAM, CD-ROM etc.

Sure is. :)  I would say to get ~ a 500w PSU...better to have a little extra...should you decide to add a graphics card, or a few more HD's. GL :)

Thanks : )

But I won't be adding anything. The PC I am building is basically use for word/internet no games at all.

My other question is, A P4 3.2Ghz Prescott eats a lot more power than a Core 2 E4300 isn't it?

Sure does.

If it's not overclocked I think the whole system wouldnt use more than 70-80w at full load.

Ah thanks guys, sweet stuff here.

100W idle
230W load

However, these values include a video card but I do not know the exact config (taken from a review).

230W at load? With an 8800GTX ??
