Default This Antec Case

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...129-117&DEPA=1

I like this case, but it comes with a 300W Antec Smart Power PSU.
I currently run an Apex case with a 350W PSU (Generice PSU).

Will the Antec case with the 300W PSU Antec Smart Power be able to handle my components? Right now the 350W PSU randomly restarts and this is not due to my oc cause the Prime 95 ran for 18 hours before I turned off my comp.

Abit AA8-Duramax
P4 520 2.8 @ 3.73
2 x 256 DDR2 Kingston VRam
WD Caviar SE 160 GB
Maxline Plus II 250 GB SATA
Optorite DVD +/- RW
LG 52x CD-ROM
Seagate 36.6 GB SCSI U320
LSI Logic U320 Controller
Sapphire Radeon X600 Pro
Floppy Drive

Pretty weak rails and not that great of wattage. If your current 350w has a +12v rail of 15a then I'd look for a diff case without a PSU unless you REALLY want that case then you could always make a 'test psu'

Other than that though, honestly I wouldn't trust my system with that weak of PSU

Get atleast 18a rated +12v rail and atleast 25a for the +3.3v
