As you propably understood from the subject, my main question is: is my Enlight 300W enough for my new Gigabyte, or should I use a new not-a-particular-brand 400W (unused)?
My Enlight was supplying fine those:
AthlonXP 1700+ ([email protected], [email protected])
Thermaltake Volcano 7+
ASUS A7V266-C
2x512Mb DDR266 Viking CL2.5
XFX (x-Pine) GF4 Ti4200 (128Mb)
40Gb Seagate 7200
20Gb Seagate 7200
12x BTC DVD
40x10x48 TEAC CDRW
Fritz isdn modem
Realtek Lan 10/100
1 system fan
Iomega ZIP USB (host powered) 100Mb
floppy, usb mouse, ps2 k/b
-----------
By tomorrow, I will be upgraded to:
AXP 1700+ ---> AXP2000+
ASUS A7V266 ---> Gigabyte GA-7VAXP
2x512Mb DDR266 ---> 1x512Mb DDR333
plus, a 80Gb WD HDD that will be added.

that makes my question a little bit changed: is this the right forum I should pose my question, or should I ask in the "AMD M/B ---> Gigabyte Motherboards" forum?
Any help appreciated.
Thanx

if u already of the 400w go right ahead and try it. check ur voltages, and if they are low then it is probably a bad psu, some psu's are listed as 400w when that is their max under perfect conditions.

either should work.
