Hi, what would the minimum watts on a PSU be to run this system:
AMD AM2 3200+
Gigabyte 6600GT GPU 256MB
512MB DDR2-533 GeIL RAM
160GB SATA2 HDD
DVD Burner
I have a 200w and a 250w PSU, would either of those scrape the bare minimum to run this (no OCing)?
Thanks in advance.

Umm... I doubt it. If it did, it might cause some problems. I'd take the safe route and get a 400W. Higher if you plan on upgrading that computer again in the future.

Yeah I would say you are safe with a 400 Watt. Even a 380 could run it if the amps are good enough.
Don't count on the 250 working.

Stuff costs a lot more in New Zealand :p. I looked them both up on Newegg for more details, and I recommend the Thermaltake. A Newegg review said the CoolerMaster isn't PCI-E compatible.
