I have a similar setup (see sig system 1)

I have the same case too, with the 350watt PSU and it worked great but just to be sure i picked up and Antec 480watt.

I have...

1 HDD
1 CD-rom
9800xt
64 3200+
4 80mm fans
1 120mm fan
1 HD cooler
1 GPU cooler
1 CPU cooler
and 1 PCI sound card

and the 350 did fine with that, so it should be alright for you unless you add like 2 HDDs and 2 CD drives or something

BTW all the fans minus CPU and GPU have LED's in them so that takes some extra power
