    Can a 350W 20 12V PSU power this setup?

    2 X 12cm Fans
    ASUS m-ATX C2D mobo
    E6700
    2GB DDRII 800 MEM
    X1800XL All in Wonder GFX
    Silverstone Fan Controller
    500GB seagate HDD

    I've not built a C2D system before, and since I'm never going to overclock this, I was just wondering would I be fine with this?

    A 350w would be a bit light. The power unit is the most important part of your system , so go for something that gives you a bit of slack . A good made is essential -try corsair 520 or 620 as they have an excellent reputation.

    Doh, Ideally I didn't want to spend more moeny, and yes 350W is the max/peak value, I don' think the psu can sustain that for long.

    This will power your system and not brake the bank.

    Definately no need for the 620w in this case. A 520w version would be more than good enough.

    I would suggest something supplying 450w+

    insufficient power is a frequent cause of intermittent problems. (and therefore most worth avoiding). Personally I'd recommend 500w + - need a good reliable make.

    is on today only at scan (and 480w is close)

    If you can try getting a dual rail PSU,Their not so expensive and the make for quite a stable system :-)

    Re: Can a 350W 20 12V PSU power this setup?

    I've used 350w on this system before, that is slightly lower spec (click my system), had no problems, but if you are buying a new psu then go for a slightly better one as you never know when you will get the urge to add more.
    In the internets, no one can hear you sarcasm.
