hello friends, i´ve just bought a new case XASER V DAMIER V5000 without power supply. actually i have a 300 watts but i have two hdd one dvd and a dvd +r-r/+rw-rw apart from the power that the case itself demands with its five coolers.so, should i switch to 420 watts from LEVICOM?? or with the one i have its enough?? i case you recommend me to buy one, which trademark and model. thanks

by the way, this week in valencia (spain) its taking place the biggest lan party in spain with more than 5500 pcs connected with a connection superior than the adsl normal. i think they have between 300 and 1 megabyte connection. VIVA SPAIN!!!!!
 
Depending on your processor you are probably pushing it using that 300 watt power supply. I have 5 case fans, (plus two on the power supply, one on CPU, one on the video card), one HD, two CD-Drives, Eqaulizer. During the last upgrade, I went ahead and just bought the first reasonable 400 watt power supply I saw on the shelf at the local computer store, and have had no problems since.

Honestly you could probably get by with the 300 watt one if you really wanted too, I used one with the setup for quite a while.
