Never had the problem. I always made it a point to spend a lil extra and get the 480 watt psu. To me its a crucial device. Right now im using a voodoo 5 agp card, a maxtor hard drive, a cd-rom 2 sticks of memory and other various components with a 320 watt psu with no problems.
I wonder how many hard drives this guy has though. Along with anythig else....
