The holes are standard so you should have no problem, 250W is more than enough for that, the Atom sips like 20W on load.

yeah ok well 250w is the smallest i have. so if i have the board with the dual core 330, an ssd, an ide dvdrom drive, itll be fine.
also, im wondering: would a pci radeon x1300 256mb be better than the onboard?

A PCI GPU? Don't the PCI bus is limiting the GPU's speed itself? Even if it is better, the PCI video card won't be that far beyond the IGP. Not so familiar with the class though... a PCI video card... hmmm :heink:
