Default Required Power

My upgrade is going to look something like this:

P4 2.66GHz Northwood
Abit IS7
1GB Kingmax 3200
40GB WD
Antec P160 w/ two 120's
6600 GT

Now I'm stuck at the PSU. I used The Power Supply Wattage Caclulator and I found my current setup to require 250 watts. Upgrading to this will requare 290 watts minimum. I substituted the 6800gt for the 6600gt because they dont have an option.
Either way, I was looking into the Antec Truepower 430's. Do you think this will be enough juice to power that. I know they are very well built PSU's. Not sure if I want that or the 480.
Your opinions would help a ton. Thanks,
-Joe

if you're looking to spend around the true430's price range, you can either go with the true 430 or this

The TruePower should be fine.
