    That depends on what else is going to be in the system. If you are putting in a mid range graphic card then you will want a 400 watt psu. If not, then 350 would be fine. Also, its not only the watts that are important, but the amps on the 12 volt line that are important too.

    350 watt HERE
    400 watt HERE
    FSP is a good brand and fairly inexpensive.

    power supply

    I think I need one with SLI Support for my video Card

    would a 450 watt power supply with SLI support work?

    or how does the new SLI Video card work with the power supply
