    I think a good-quality 300W PSU should be enough. The wattage of the PSU would depend more on your other components, such as the graphics card, which will be the main power consumer in the system (if you have a current-gen i.e. a high-end GeForce 7\8 series card or a similar ATI X1xxx series card), as well as the number of disk drives as USB devices connected.
