Default Shuttle PSU...

I am thinking about buying a shuttle SB83G5 to mess with and load media center OS on to it. I really have to questions:

1. is a 200w power supply going to cut it.... i am thinking of a 250 seagate SATA hd/ 2.8 prescott pentium four/ 1 gig memory/ plus something like a radeon 9800 pro video card.... -------I have doubts about this one...... where can I buy a psu that is the same form factor, a google search has lead me no where!
2. What do you guys think about shuttle pc's I have read other posts and customer reviews and i come to the conclusion that the PC's work great for a crouple of months and then self-destruct. Anyone who has any experience with these computers please post a reply.


-Be curious it will lead you to all four corners of the world-

My only input on that is I SERIOUSLY doubt a 200 watt power supply is gonna do the job of powering all that stuff.
