Default Sufficient Power Supply

Could I run a 8800GTS with a 400 W power supply? Other hardware: Two DVD burners, one 320 hard drive, Core 2 Duo 6600 2gb of ram.

You could, but would I try it? No.
Try to look for something with atleast 500+W for that rig of yours.

These three are all good buys.

corsair would be the best bet out of those three. The last two are the same things as FSP makes the GameXstreams and those are lower quality than the seasonic built HX520/620
