Upgrade and power supply

I'm finally going to kill my stock Media Center click here
machine and resurrect it as an entry-level workstation. I have purchased an Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro and an ASUS EN6200 LE vid card plus I'm adding another dvd drive/burner, a Memorex Multi-format DVD Recorder. My machine, in this current condition has only a 300W PS. What do you recommend upping to? Or need I muck with it at all? After I outgrow this I'll try building my own custom job, but for now, this'll do well enough.
Thanks to all.

I would not "muck " with it at all, if you have problems then buy the biggest and best that you can afford, as it will do for your next build

I doubt very much that your pc will struggle with that psu, you don't say what your cpu is but the graphics card is a low power consumption item. There are websites which allow you to enter pc specs and suggest a psu rating but bear in mind they probably also want to sell you a new one!
