Power supply upgrade?

I've just installed an 80Gig HD and everything went haywire presumably because I need to increase the PSU. I've a cd-rw; dvd rom; two 20gig hds, and an 80gig hd and it was after I put in the second 80gig that the "wheels fell off"! The 20gigs are in a raid array, the original 80gig is on channel 1 and the cd & dvd on channel 2, all IDE . Any advise greatly appreciated.

misery,

I would suggest a large roomy case, with decent airflow, and a good 450W (or over) true power supply.

What exactly happened? I don't think that a lack of power is necessarily the culprit here.
