Depends mostly on the graphics card. What graphics card are we talking about? That won't run anything faster than an 8600GT, and even that's a gamble.

Unless you're using onboard video or an old graphics card, that PSU doesn't supply quite enough on the 12V rail to power most of today's newer video cards.

350w is the cheapest, even if you want to use a cheap one, get at least 450w.

i'll end up buyin that 600w one in that thread... but the only reason i wanna know is cuz im gettin my CPU for christmas (along with a keyboard, mouse, and new CD drive) then in february on my BDay i'll buy my mobo.. and maybe my case.. just so i can get it up and runnin... then when i have some extra money i'll probably buy a Zalman CPU cooler, the PSU... and some better case fans and some LED's to top it off..
