Unfortunately, 300W PS's are obsolete for up to date machines. There are a few folks that insist that their XP-2600+ boxes with all the trimmings run fine on a no-name 250W ATX PS.

Never known one of these people! For quality and bang per monetary unit, it's hard to beat a 350W Sparkle. A 400W PS may be a wise investment, new PC's never seem to require less power.

The "shootout" that JayJay's link takes you to is well worth a read.
