Hey, I was just wondering if someone could tell me how many watts my atx power supply needs to be if i have a 1.4ghz amd athlon processor? I know its more than my current 250w but not sure if my 300w power suply will work? All help would be appreciated.

I'm using a 1.6GHz AMD Athlon XP 1900+, and using a 300W power supply. 3 IDE drives, a FDD, and a handful of PCI cards. And GeForce3 of course. And 6 fans to cool it all. My PSU hasn't complained yet.
