Or do you need the +3.3v/20a etc etc?
From my experience a 400W PSU should do the job, but if your planning on upgrading parts in the future (especialy the GPU as you stated) a more powerful and reliable PSU maybe needed, I would suggest:

ThermalTake TR2 Value 500W (40.25):

But it maybe worth waiting and see what other people suggest on the forum first.

I have decided to stay with AMD now, and get a decent CPU and G-card.

Looking at these:

CPU - http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?W...source=froogle

G-card - http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/512MB...-DL-DVI-I-HDTV

But will these work with this Motherboard?

it would be a shame to take that 4850 off the list because of having to get a new motherboard, it's a great, reasonably priced card, great bang for the buck...
