Ok. in 2days i am going to buy new "computer"

I was thinking about:
AMD 64 3200+ Venice
DFi NF4-DAGF
MSI GF 6600 GT PCI-E
512MB Kingston ddr400

so. i have here two 300w power supplies.
1st one is HEC-300-LR-PT
Another one is some macron 300w junk.

Accordin to tomshardware.com tests this HEC power supply
can go up to 351w. Is it enough for that system?
If it works, will it last a month whitout exploding? :p

You want at least a 450watt power supply,,name brand, antec,sparkle, no
cheapy. Dont even attempt to run that system with a 300+psu.

Yeah. i know that calc. and thanks for the tip there to add 30%.
331w. This 300w HEC is quality stuff so it will run it.
If it blows up after a month then i go get a 400w Fortron or something.
