    So my HTPC thus far looks like this:

    Intel Pentium 4 3.0Ghz
    MSI mobo (don't remember the model)
    1-500Gig hdd
    Nvidia 8600GT
    Hauppauge 550MCE
    Samsung DVD-Drive

    Nothing really pulling much power, how small of a PSU could I get away with? There will be a wireless card in there as well eventually.

    Probably a quality 300 watt power supply would suffice.

    That's what I was thinking. Didn't think I would need much more than that but wanted to be sure.
