What are the other components in your setup? If it has intergrated graphics and so on, the you'll only need 350 watts. (make sure it has a lot of ampage though)

the thing is that antec is pretty expensive i know they're worth it but im on a low budget. I was checking out this case " http://www.edazz.com/raho28gr0jas.html " and thinking of adding two more fans to it ....

would this 380w power suply do the job? even though its not really brand name?

I am going with what Trotter said, he speaks the truth.

And I could get more case fans in my comp (4 total) but they wouldn't serve a purpose as they have objects in front of them.

I get a headache seeing how many times people wanna use a PSU that comes with the case.

most PSU's that comes with cases are the ****.
