    Help me build my new PC.

    I'm gonna build a new PC & i wanna know what size PSU i should get.
    • I'll be running XP on it for now
    • I may "downgrade" to Vista
    • I want the MOBO so i can connect my tv to the hdmi and my monitor to the vga.
    • I won't be adding any more HDDs
    • I will be using my current DVD writer
    • I may replace my DVD writer with a Blu-Ray Re-Writer.
    • I may get a good graphics card

    CASE: EV Black/Silver MATX Cube Case with Acrylic Side/Top Windows - No PSU - 12cm Blue LED Fan Updated.
    MOBO: ASUS P5E-VM HDMI iG35 Socket 775 onboard VGA 8 channel audio mATX Motherboard
    CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7300 2.66GHz Socket 775 (1066FSB) 3MB L2 Cache Retail Boxed Processor
    RAM: Kingston 2GB (2x1GB) DDR2 1066MHz/PC2-8500 Hyperx Memory Non-ECC Cl5(5-5-5-15) Unbuffered Updated.
    HDD: Samsung SpinPoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB Hard Drive SATAII *32MB Cache* - OEM
    Also if anyone has any suggestions on better parts, please suggest away.

    Also i got 400 (MAX) to spend.

    Seasonic or OCZ seems be good right now. I've used a ton of Enermax and Antec and they seem to be ok for regular builds, but I would personally only use the first two I recommended.
    Intel Core 2 Duo Q8300 2.55Ghz (1333mhz)
    Asus P5N-D
    OCZ Platinum 8gb (2x2gb) PC8000 1000mhz 5-5-5-18
    EVGA 460GTX 1gb PCIE 2.0
    Western Digital Black 640gb x 2 Raid 0
    Coolermaster 1000W Modular PSU
    Antec NSK4480B
    Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    HP TC5700 (Thin Client) 1ghz, 512mb 80gb 1x1000mb NIC 1x100mb NIC running PFSense 1.22
    Linksys WRT-150 running DD-WRT V.24 (Access Point)
