    Much of it depends on the amps on the 12v rail. I had an Antec 350watt PSU that supplyed 28amps on the 12v rail & was able to run my ATI X1800xt & it said it required a 450watt PSU. That being said I did end up upgrading to a 500watt PSU with 30amps on the 12v rail a couple weeks later just to be on the safe side. 300watts with?v on the rail, I think I would upgrade. Buy a good, decent PSU from a major brand.

    DONT SKIMP ON THE POWER SUPPLY!

    You can tell if its a good PSU by the weight of it. If its really light its no good. A good PSU has some decent weight to it.

    Probably not. I use a 450 Watt and I was iffy with that.

The hardrive, motherbored, pics card if u prefer to reckoning on the pics card itself and the disk force, honeslt its fairly effortless. flow for a 8800 gt or above. i have been given mine for 89 quid

    no. 400 watts would be stretching. 450 is really the minimum.
