    I am about to build a new gaming pc. Not a serious system but one that can run the games with no problem. I want to use a micro atx size system but the ones that I see doesn't come with a power supply over 300 watts. Anyone know where I can find at least a 350 watt power suply for a micro atx case.

    Yeah I want at least a 350watts. I found a cube styled micro atx case with 300 watts. I want to know if this is enough power to run an ati 9600 aiw and two 160gb hd and 512mb of memory and dvdrw drive.

    Well I used to run my system off (i had a Ti4400 and a XP2100 when) a 350W ... granted it was a Thermaltake one with reliable rails but even a stock PSU might do it.

    Sufficient most likely ... but would I be comfortable with a 300W PSU? ... not a chance. :)

    Nah I changed a micro atx pc system won't work. I've never had a system that had less than 400 watts. Any one know of a good site (a respectable one) to get computer cases from.

    1. By LCD do you mean something like the Matrix Orbital or an LCD monitor?
    2. The lights dont use much power
    3. Those fans, regular stock fans or something like the Vantec Tornado? :)

    What make/model was it? :)
