Default How good PSU will I need?

I'm upgrading my computer and I'm wondering how good PSU I will need.

The specs are (probably):

AMD Athlon64 X2 3800+ (socket AM2)

2Gb RAM PC6400

XFX GeForce 7600 256mb

Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi Platinum

ECS NFORCE4M-A, nForce4 , AM2


I currently have a 300W PSU, but I think I'm gonna have to get a better one.

So, what do you say?

Yeah, you will have to get a better one. I would say at least 500W, and if you plan on upgrading in the future, at least 600-700W

get atleast 450 watt with atleast 22 amps on the 12v+ rail, that will easily power your system.

heres mine: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817103464
does my system justice.

The site is http://www.shg.biz and this is the product: http://www.shg.biz/link.asp?goto=infobox&varenr=820203

But it is a Swedish site (some parts of it is written in English though)
