What PSU Wattage?

I'll be upgrading to:

Athlon XP 2000+,
Geforce 4 Ti4400,
MSI KT333 Ultra Mobo,
512 MB DDR PC2700 RAM
40GB 7200rpm HDD.

I was wondering what PSU would be best for this.


Should I go for a 300W, 350W, 400W or what? I don't want to buy more than I really need, cos I don't have money to blow on unnecessary power.

Sorry it's a stupid question and isn't strictly CPU related!

  2. Thanks for that! I'll probably go for a 350w cos i found a pretty reasonably priced one.
  3. Cool sounds good

    AMD XP 1900+
    Geforce 3 TI 200
    PC2100 512MB
  4. Beware of the "reasonably priced ones", I bought one and it is noisy as hell. It has two fans, I disconnected one to keep the noise down. Of course, you are likely to have a other fans that are noisier. Especially the CPU or the Graphics card fan.
