Default Powersupply, is it enough?

Is a 450Watt Antec PSU enough for X1950Pro, AMD X2 AM2 4000+, 2HDD's (7200RPM), 2gb DDR2?

If thats all you have then it's fine, if you haven't ordered it yet I would suggest 500w

if you google for power supply calculator there are sites out there where you can put in your components and it will calculate for you how big of a power supply you will need. about a 450-600 watt supply should be fine for what you listed but you want to buy on the higher end if you can to allow for future upgrades.
