Heyo! :)

Well, im in the market for a new powersupply, and i want to know if the Enermax 350W Dual Fan Whisper PSU will be strong enough for my system

Abit NF7-S
Barton 2500+ (Going to be overclocked)
2x256mb OCZ EL PC3500
GeForce 4 Ti4400 (Going to be getting a Radeon 9700 soon)
Seagate 'Cuda 60gb 7200rpm
LG CD-RW
Floppy
2x80mm Case fans
1x92mm Vantec Tornado
Nexus Rheobus

So, if the Barton and get a Radeon get overclocked (both of which will obviously draw more power) will the powersupply be suffice? Any recommendations?

Thanks! :)

EDIT: probably shoulda posted this in case and cooling..

Well, I had experience running Enermax 330 and 365 on AMD PCs, using Epox 8KHA+ and 8K3A+, and it doesn't have enough combined for these boards if overclocking.

That is awesome power supply, excellent for Pentium machines. I am using it that way.

Combined is 185W. That is 35W less than Sparkle 350. Pentium CPU feeds of 12V line and that is 25A strong, more than enough. With AMD PCs ... good luck. It might work fine apparently.

Working fine here with the 1st rig in "My Rigs"-if I was buying now though I'd get the Enermax 465 or the Antec True 480.
