400W PSU powerful enough?

  1. I need to replace my iffy 500W PSU.

    I have seen a quiet 400W one that is quite nice.

    Would 400W be powerful enough to run:

    AMD X2 5200+ AM2
    MSI K9N AM2 Motherboard
    SATA HDD
    GeForce 7600GT PCI-E(x16)
    4x Technotrend budget S2-3200 tuner cards
    4GB DDR2 RAM 800MHz

    This system will be mainly used for HDTV not gaming.

    Many thanks,
    Rob

    Depends on the quality of the PSU. I think a good one will handle that fine, a $30 one probably won't, or at least not for long.
