It might struggle a little. Go for a 450 or more.

My Sound Ust to do it on vice city purely cause the amount of sound is it that there is a lot of sound at once if so i think you need a separtate(spelling) card . If you all ready have a separtate car then i would say power.

What sound card is it? Some old cards can't handle the bit rate of todays.

I would say listen to David. With all those fans, and the cathode, along with everything else, the PSU is probably getting drawn on alot.

Like David said, get a 450 watt or more to be sure
