    that is a lot of hardware that you have there and 150 watts will definately not cut it . you will need atleast a 650 watt power supply, i would get 800 to be on the safe side, the higher the better, lowers your chances of any hardware failiure

    Beautiful setup, but he's right, you're definately going to want AT THE LEAST a 650w, but the higher, as mentioned, is always better, especially with hardware upgrading as fast as it is today.
