is my psu big enough?

  fredo3 07:54 24 Feb 2004


I have 2 case fans/1 hard-drive with akasa cooling fan attached/msi delta mobo/2000xp/ti4200 graphics card/512mb ddr266/1 cd writer/ 1 cd rom drive ....all with a 300w psu.

I built the system 2 days ago and I'm not experiencing any problems so far but should I worry about having a 300w psu ....I installed the 3 extra fans and I'm now worrying the psu could be overloaded or am I just too paranoid?

Should be ok like that; unless they are silent fans, ths sound of a hoover on your desk will be more to worry about!
