Default PSU question 350 or 430

This is the system I'm putting together... need to know if 350W would suffice >>

P4 2.8ghz 800 FSB
1 GB PC 3200 Dual Channel
CD-RW Drive
DVD +/- RW
LeadTek TV Tuner card
Radeon 9000 Pro (not a gamer, so not much need to upgrade)
2 HDD's (WD 120GB Caviar and 40GB Maxtor)
3 8mm fans
that's about it...

I just bought the Antec Performance Plus case and it's very nice, but it's HUGE (22" H with feet). It comes with a 430 SmartPower Antec PSU, which would be more than enough, but there's a nice Antec mid-tower that would fit all my parts, but only comes with a 350W PSU. If it would be ok, I might switch. If not, I'll stcik with this monster.

Thanks for any advice/suggestions!
