Absolutely correct, most rigs will run fun on a good quality 350w psu, but there's always the need for a little headroom so I always recommend anything post 2008 to have a 500w unit as it's hard deck, dual video cards call for a bit more.
XFX have a range of PSU's now that iirc have only one rail but this is supposed to mean a cleaner supply to everything, easy rail iirc, psu itself is Seasonic so it should be a good unit.

I found it on a very small website I visit and it's been up there for a good few years, as you can see I've not tried to take credit for it, and I started off with who wrote it and how to find the author, if the author isn't happy about this then it can be removed if they so wish but imo the fact no facts have been changed, nor the credit for it changed if I was the author I'd be feeling quite warm that my work found it's way from nowhere to one of the biggest HW manufacturer's sites and especially as links to me are all over it.
Matt, if it is going to cause problems do please have it removed, iirc Vegan has been writing his own one up so his could replace this if he says it's ok.
Marc, thx for bringing it to our attention, the intent is to help people which is what Huds was trying to achieve with this anyway, I'll see if I can contact him and get full permission.
Well sent an e.mail and it came back not able to deliver so I guess it's going to have to come down so I'll request it's removal.
I've deleted the content, a mod will remove the rest later.

The link is fine, but it's true that posting the entirety of someone else's article on another site, even with proper attribution, is not good practice.
We'll leave the link up, and since the content has been removed, we're in good shape.

Thank you guys. The link is fine though can the original post on this thread be updated to link to both http://www.huddysworld.co.uk/index.php?view=articl
As it is, how relevant do you people think PSU issues are to modern hard disks? In my experiance, a SATA disk uses less than ten watts. A cold start spin-up may nail you for 2 to 3 amps (24 to 36 watts) for a few seconds but that's easily in the range of even a low-end power supply.
