That 370w PSU has plenty of power for your rig.

I'm running more kit than you off a 400w PSU and there's plenty of power left over.

Many PS's are available at Newegg.com . It's generally agreed that Antec and Enermax power supplies are good. I can't vouch for Vantec, Zalman or Zippy-Emacs brands of PS's. I have great faith in PC Power & Cooling power supplies, the gotcha being that they're mighty expensive. It's a good idea to buy more power than you need--that way your PS might be able to handle the next mainboard you install in the future.

The 3 brands I have here now are Antec, Enermax and Zalman. All 3 work well for me.

My 400w PSU runs 10 fans, 2 water pumps, nVidia 6800U video card, A64 3500+ overclocked CPU, 2 RAM sticks, 1 HDD, 1 floppy and 2 CD/DVD drives with spare capacity for more.

I can tell how much power my system draws thanks to the software for my UPS device.

Of course, you need to have some extra capacity. Things like hard drives will draw more power when the PC is first switched on.

cloasters the power usage really isnt that bad at all.

I had my system, with an athlon 64, 2 sticks of DDR, 2 optical drives, 2 hard drives, and a 6800GT running on a 300W skyhawk server edition, though it is not very safe it worked very well. Ive also run it on a 350W enermax, and the enermax's heat variable fan stayed on "low" the entire time. My current Enermax 431W does the job with power to spare.

It is so much more to do with the quality of your power supply than it is to do with the power output of it.

It is definately worth buying a lower rated premium brand PSU, than a high wattage generic, or average brand unit.
