CORSAIR Vengeance 8GG DDR3 1600 RAM
Foxconn A76ML-K 3.0 AM3 AMD 760G Micro ATX
nVidia Geforce 9500GT 1gb 128-bit DDR2
500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 SATA HDD
160GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 IDE HDD

Thanks

    Thr psu requirements are driven mostly by the graphics configuration.
    Since your 9500GT does not need any auxiliary psu power leads, you should be fine with a 300w psu.

    Whatever, buy only a quality psu. My short list would include Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, PC P&C, and Antec.

    400w psu's are no more expensive, look at a Corsair cx430 which is dirt cheap at $25 after promotions:
