More info dude, what speeds are all these drives going to be at? What CPU and motherboard? Also, output is only one factor to take into cosideration when buying a PSU, you need to figure out what rails you need, and what current they need on 'em.

Get atleast a 400w like neosteve said,just make sure you get a half decent 1 with a good +12v rail,you will want atleast an 18amp rail,and make sure it has enough connector's for everything you need to run.

Go with a 500 watt, the more juice the better, 350 is not enough.
