tl;dr: How many watts should this builds PSU be? Came with a 90W DC Power Supply.

I have tried searching for a calculator that has the AMD E350 APU on it but I have yet to find one. Can anyone estimate how many watts the following mini-itx builds PSU will need? The motherboard came with a 90W DC power brick that it makes me use as the power supply, but I don't know if that will be sufficient.

Please feel free to rate the build also, all I purchased was the case and the rest I got from a points site so my options were limited.

My HTPC uses an E350. I run it on a 65W PSU. No problems there.
