Default PSU question

MSI Neo2f
Athlon 64 3000
1 gig Ram
Geforce 6800 GT
2 harddrives

My question is: what is the least amount of watts needed in a power supply to power up a rig like this? And when I say the least just say the least, not what is confortable.. Thanks..

Why do you want to know the true power ? You don't want to OC or anything ?

I do want to OC, I plan to.. But saying how much for just stock? I had a 300 psu and I just finished installing, hooked it up and started it.. Seemed like the psu could only power up the CPU fan and the motherboard, it was weak! Then I say a little spark from the psu and then it went dead..

haggard said a 400w "true power" which is a brand PSU, not the guy wanting to know 'the true power'

Get a PSU with probably atleast 20a+ rated on the +12v rail and you'll be good to go
