Default Recommended power supply for Gaming?

The case that I want to buy has a 350w PSU installed. Is that powerful enough for gaming?

By today's standards, no. IMO one of the best PSUs that you can buy out there is the OCZ Powerstream 520 watt PSU. A little pricey, but its really good, and its 24 pin

If money is no object, PC Power and Cooling 510W is the best (next to the PCP&C 850W ).

Antec is good aswell.
