I have a little upgrade (current machine is going to our church), and I'm wondering if I need a new PSU as well. I'm currently running an Antec Smartblue 350/Asus a7n8x dlx/amd xp 2100+/nvidia ti4400. Newegg should be shipping me a DFI LANPARTY UT nF3 250Gb, along with a amd 64 2800+ to sit on top of it. I plan to continue using my ti4400 for the time being; can my current PSU drive this? If things are close, I could drop down to a couple hard drives in the case, alone with a dvd drive.

If it will work now, how about later, if I want to upgrade to a nvidia 6600 gt or so? (I'm aware that the current card will be the -major- weak link in the system).

I figured that someone else here might have some useful first hand experience on how far you can stretch your power supply.

Yeah.. I'd think that unless you step up to newer video card you should be just fine.

I'm running a P4 3.0 with a 6800GT, two HD's (One external USB), and all the other gadgetry involved on an Antec Smartpower 350 watt. I've had no problems in the four months I've been using it.
