Hello.
I've been told I would need 400W by some people, others said 450W, some said I should go for a 500W to be safe.
But I do have a budget so I need to get just what's right and not much more.

Here are the specs:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, 1066Mhz, s775, 4MB
Mobo: 965P-DS3 s775, Conroe, DDRII 800, PCI-E
RAM: 2x1GB TwinMOS CL5
GFX: 7600GT 256MB TV, DVI, PCI-E
HDD: 250GB 7200RPM, 16MB, SATA II
DVD±RW: GSA-H42NK x18 LG

Not planning on overclocking.
I was thinking about a 420W Thermaltake PSU, how does that sound?

Thanks.

By the way, I did try that eXtreme Outer Vision PSU calculator but I only got a result of 348W so I'm not sure how accurate this is.
