    Im just about finished building my computer.
    Its an Athlon Barton 2500 on a Gigabyte GA-7VAX board.
    512MB PC3500 memory. 2 Harddrives, floppy, 2 Optical drives
    So the power supply I have is 300W.

    Will this be adequate for the system? Im planning on a 64MB vid card, running 4X or 8X

    I have a 300 watt supply in my system which has exactly the same number of components and it works fine.

    One thing to note is that cheaper power supplies will rate them for output higer than they can really achive. Get a 300w supply from a well known company and you will be all set.
