  1. It probably can. There are some online tools that give you a rough estimate of how much power you're gonna need according to your components. Newegg has one of them you should try it
  2. Based on the items you mentioned, plus a few more that make up a typical system,
    I ran the PSU calculator at http://extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine and it suggested a PSU with 360W.
    You should be 'OK'.
  3. Which Phenom II x4 CPU do you have, to get one that runs @ 2.66ghz?
  4. You are just fine happy gaming
