    Ok, so that 520w will be plenty. I will get the antec HCG 520 for $109

    Thanks for your help.

    One last thing, if you can, can you explain to me how much my system need for power.

    Is it something like 200w(gpu)+100W(cpu+mobo)+100W(hdd+dvd+misc)?

    guessing... btw your calculation is close enough for max power, at idle/normal use, it will be 50% from it
    and psu need rooms to operate well, dont max it fully to its wattage for long term usage
