That isn't much of a load at all. Even with the ATI 9600XT.

Unless your running more then 1-2 hard drives and a mad amount of case fans then your not going to need more then 350 Watts. I'm not talking about any 350 Watts. I'm talking about true 350 Watts that a good PSU would provide (Enermax, Antec, Vantec, PCpowerandcooling, ect..).

This one looks like your best choice out of those options..

Yeah you don't need much with that specific setup. Like RudyR1999 suggested, I would get a good 420w PSU from a brand that delivers TruePower to compensate for a near future upgrade
