I wouldnt. Depending on the rest of your system specs I would want
a 550watt or higher, and a quality psu at that. If it runs you will always
be on the edge of failure with the rest of your components dieing a
slow or fast death. Not worth it. Ive seen more than one mobo get
toasted from a weak or bad psu...This is only my opinion....

QTF. Antec don't have the greatest rep either. It might be ok running something like a 8800GT (much less power), but not a GTS. I'd aim for at least 500w to be safe, you might get away with less, as manic said, but it will be on the edge and that isn't good for longevity.
