I would say 400 watts too. 350 watts is adequate as well, but it's better to give a little more room for expansion in case you want to add SLi expansion or other things to make your PC faster and better. But yea, it will play all the games you mentioned with those specs. We have similar specs too and I'm playing those games with no problems at all. No lag of any sort.

Yea I agree. I don't consider 350 to be safe enough. I'd do at least 400.

Default Well ......

That would ALL depend on the PSU.

I am using a 350W and it copes with a 6600GT and 3000+ easy.

If you are using a cheap one (unbranded)

* cough *

You might in a few mouths be reordering your parts!

Also it's not only the wattage but the rails.

I'd chose a stedy 350W over a cheap 400W anyday!

Yeah, I have a 300W and it does just fine, although I do get worried when I do some massive gaming...
