Default help?!?

I am buying a computer soon and i am on a somewhat tight budget. The case i am looking at comes with a 420 watt PS from kingwin. I will be running an athlon 3500+, a gig of ram, and a 6600GT 128 video card. I am wondering if i should buy a new PS or is this one good enough?

I've never heard of that brand of PSU but generally the PSUs provided with cases generally tend to not be that great.

Antec TruePower PSUs are meant to be really nice, im getting one myself in a couple of days.

don't go cheap on the power supply

if you can't afford one, then cut back from a 3500+ to a 3200+ winchester

I don\'t play for fun, I play to win and winning is fun.
