Hey, I'm going to build myself a new computer with a ASUS A7N8X mobo, 2 x 256 mb DDR400, and a Radeon 9700 pro in it. The case that i'm buying has a 350 watt power supply. I was wondering is that enough power for my system?

It should be fine.

Unless you run 3CDROMs and 3-4HDs and many casefans it will be enough.

My PC eats so much money that I'm in 'desperate' need of it to buy PC3500 RAM, help Svol with his OC project!

Well, I'm going to have 2 DVD/CD drives and 2 harddrives in the case. Plus the 9700 pro is a power sucker. Is the 350 watt power supply still enough? Even if i want to overclock the 2800+, is the 350 ps sufficient?

Without OC I think it will be enough. But when you start OC'ing it could be that you need a better one. You just have to try to see if it supplies enough power when you start OC'ing a bit.

350W should be sufficient, provided its a quality brand like Antec, Toptower or Enermax.
Though you may need more for really extreeme overclocking. (unlikely though)

if you play on upgrading certain parts, that might need more power... then i'd save yourself the trouble and just go with a 431w Enermax for safekeeping
