480w+ easily. assuming you will have the usual DVD-burner and hdd setup most people have. good choice on the 4400+. in my opinion its always better to spend more on a processor than graphics card unless you are a mental gamer but thats just my 2c. and seeing as this is a gaming rig it does make sense.
