Should be ok. 400-450watts are good for entry level PC with those specs.

Id go 450W just because of the 2gb ram, large hdd, and both the disk drives.

would the 400psu still be ok if i added this hsf "Zalman CNPS9500 At LGA775 "(http://search.ncix.com/productdetail...er=1&sku=19079) and removed the stock hsf ?

and this hsf does support the mobo and processor i pick right?

That wouldn't matter. But, that PSU comes with the case, and those typically are pretty bad. I wouldn't even bother plugging it up; just get a nice aftermarket one. You won't regret it.

Yes, that 400W PSU should fare well with those components, they don't suck up that much power anyhow.
