At least a 350W, and thats only if its high quality

The graphics card is a drainer i believe, and so is the ram.

I get about 354W, so a 400 or 450W PSU will do!!

I recently bought a Q-Tec 400W for £18 from a Computer Fair, it's the Gold model with twin cooling fans. I read a lot of reviews before I bought this and pound for pound it always came out well for quality and reliability. Some reviewers said it was a little noisey but personally I think it's fine.

Fair enough, Q-tec aint bad i dont think!!
