Default Power Supply

I currently have a 350 watt power supply, and I was wondering if I need a more powerful power supply for the new P4 extreme edition, that I'm getting next week?

well it depends on what you have in your case, but if it's just a basic setup, you've got more than enough power, IE: mobo, chip, sound card, video card, 2 Hdd's, 2 CD-roms... that PSU can handle at least that.. now if you have cathodes and stuff in there, it's a different story

Some motherboards would allow using a standard power connector instead of the 4-pin molex, (and there is the method of using a molex converter), but such actions aren't really recommended by Intel.

And it is wise to get more output through a quality power supply, seeing as many of the newer P4s draw upwards 65-80W for normal operation.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.
