Power usages below (not exact):

CPU sempron 3000+ 1800Hz

62W

ram 1.5Gb

~10W

Motherboard <-- YOU FORGOT!!! :thumbsup:

30W

2-nd one is Nvidia 250mb DDR3 8600GT

~70W

Hard disk is Hitachi 165Gb

Assuming is 7200 RPM, ~15W

Dvd rec .LG

25W

That comes up to 210W

Edit: Mu power consumption for RAM was ridiculously high. Now that I've fixed the numbers, a 350W power supply may just be enough. If you'd like to be on the safe side, I recommend that you go for a 450 W power supply to ensure there are no problems with low power later on.
