Current system as below, 1. Athlon X2 4800, 65W 2. Motherboard, Nvidia 7025, onboard vga 3. ddr2, 1GB x2 = total two stick and 2gb 4. DVDRW x1 5. SATA HDD x2 6. pci x1 (wireless antenna)
Above is covered well by Antec 350 power supply, all good for two years.
I will be upgrading the above 1, 2, 3
Future system prospect, 1. Phenom II X4 940, 95W 2. Motherboard, AMD 785, onboard vga 3. ddr2, 1GBx2 and 2GBx1 = total three stick and 4gb 4, 5, 6 is the same as above
I don't overclock, i don't use fans. I have checked power calculator from 1. Newegg and 2. eXtreme power calculator. 1. Newegg shows bullshit (they simply wanna sell more power supplies) 2. eXtreme shows approx, 275W usage.
Any experts out there may advice me, if I need to upgrade my power supply from Antec 350 to a clunker one?

Your title is kinda misleading..
Anyway, no need to upgrade. That's enough for the system.
Are you planning on running a GPU on that Phenom II system?
