    I am going to get myself a new power supply but am unsure what power I need. I have the following in my compter.
    P4 2.8 478 socket CPU
    Asus motherboard
    1024MB RAM
    1x20GB HD
    1x40GB HD
    On board sound
    Geforce 5200 graohics card
    Wi/fi card
    2x blackgold digital tv tuners

    Is 350W enough?

    You should be fine with that. If you upgrade the graphics card or cpu you night want to think about a 400watt one .
