Looking at building a P4 system. Probably with a Antec Case. Either a 860 or 880. Do I need a 430w Power Supply, or is 330w enough? I will have 2 HD's, DVD, CD-R, Floppy, 3 Fans (?), ASUS P4B533E.

A 330 watt PS should be sufficient. I run 3 HD's( 2*RAID 0 ), a GeForce 3 Card, CD-Rom, CDR, Zip, Floppy, SB Live, etc. Also, 4 case fans for a total of 9 in Tower.

Just get a really good PS, say a Enermax 330W with 2 Fans in it. Get one with plenty of air flow. Keep that tower cool.

if your buyin a new case, i suggest going with cheiftec, antec gets their cases from cheiftec, so it's the same exact thing, just about 50 bucks cheaper.
