Default something about my psu and wattage?

ok right now, the specs in my computer are:


Motherboard- Intel Rexburg D845GRG
(intergrated audio and video)

Video- Geforce4 MX440 (gayway edition) -whoops sorry, spelled gateway wrong...

Audio- Creative SB Live! Player 1024

CPU- Intel P4 2.4 Ghz

Ram slot 1- 128MB
Ram slot 2- 256MB

and i have a 160W power supply.

.................................................. .........................

now if i switched my video to a Radeon 9600, and got rid of my 128MB ram stick, and replaced it with a 512MB, would my psu still be enough to run them??

You could try, but my feeling is that a 160w PSU will not be enough to run that load dependably(may randomly reset). I would say you need at least a 250-300w PSU.

... o really... wtf! lol im gonna have to spend all this money.. i was looking forward to spending somewhere around $100 for everything... guess thats not happening.

nvm, my friend just found an old 300W that hes giving to me for $20. (i think it should be free, but i would feel like a jerk if i said that)

one more question: if his is an ATX, would it fit in my microATX case?
pppllease god say it will.
