I recently got a DVD Writer. This will mean I have 3 harddisks,a CD Writer,a DVD Rom and said DVD Writer. My Amd1.4 TB system also has a total of 6 fans. I am also planning to get a Geforce4Ti4400 in the not too distant future.

Will my 350w Enermax be able to cope, or will i need an additional PSU?

try to calculate the total wattages of all of your devices, then you will know if the 350W can handle them all. but as always, its better to have a bigger psu just on the safe side. in my opinion, the 431W whisper is suitable for your rig, but i could be wrong though.

Welcome to the forums.
Before I duffed up the system, I was running a CDRW, DVD, 7 hard drives(2 IDE, 5 SCSI), 1.3G TBird, 14 case, vid and CPU fans on an Enermax, with no problems. A really good deal lead to upgrading to the Enermax EG451, and watercooling lead me to add another PSU, which is probably overkill. The Enermax's have actually handled anything I've thrown at them for quite a while. For what you have, there really isn't a need to upgrade unless you want to.
