    Yes,it will certainly power the motherboard. :)

    It`s when you start adding drives and upgrading the video card

    that more power might be needed.

    If you don`t plan adding too much to the system,you might get away with it..

    To be more specific, I'm planning to have this basic system configuration:
    Intel Pentium III processor@450MHz; 128MB SDRAM; 10GB HDD; CD-ROM; which I'll use for basic staff like e-mail and word processing. Would that 250Watts PSU be enough for that configuration?

    I used M748LMRT before, therefore it WILL SUPPORT any CPU upgrades.

    And yes, it is enough power for your configuration.

    If you can, you need to find more than 128MB SDRAM PC133.

    The ideal for your system is 256MB - 384MB on M748LMRT

    This should be enough for your everyday uses.
