Default Power needs ?!

My power supply ATX 420 watts blew out. I think i ran it with to many things hook up to it.

Should a 450 watts be good. Or should just go hinger for the 500 over ?

I just going out to buy a new one later any help would be nice. Because I am not really sure if 30 watts will make different . If just a P4 256mb video card 6 usb 512 3.00Ghz pc windows pro . I use about 5 of the usb tho.
