New PS

    My CWT 320W power supply croaked on me today after about a year. I'm using
    my friend's 250W (!) power supply for now until I get a new one.
    Surprisingly, things are working pretty well so far... I can even play games
    without any problems.

    Just wondering what the requirements are for an Athlon power supply. E.g.
    how much power the +3.3V and +5V outputs need to be able to handle, etc.

    Also, I'm looking for a reasonably priced 300W power supply. Maybe 350W, if
    the price is right... but it doesn't look like I need any more than that.
    Any suggestions?

    Here's my configuration:

    AMD Athlon XP 1800+
    MSI KT3 Ultra, BIOS v5.7
    512 MB PC2700 DDR RAM
    IBM Deskstar 120GXP 60 GB HD
    ATI Radeon 8500, Catalyst v3.6
    LG 32X10X40 CD-RW
    Realtek RTL8139/810X PCI Ethernet
    Logitech QuickCam Messenger
    Gravis Gamepad Pro
    Logitech Wheel Mouse Optical
    Windows XP SP1
