I got a 300w Sparkle Psu. I was wanting to know if it will hold all of these items. Will name what I already have running on it.

AthlonXp 1700+ @ 1.61ghz (Running)
Seagate 10gb 5400 rpm (Running)
Nvidia Geforce2 GTS 32mb DDR (Running)
ECS K7S5A MoB0 (Running)
Lucent Win Modem (Running)
Soundblaster PCI128 Sound Card (Running)
And the Vantec Tornado -80mm- (Running)

Ok, I'm gonna add two blowholes. One on the side case blowing onto the heatsink For intake. And the other on the top of the case for Exhaust. Probably both Panaflows 80mm. Just wanting to know if I will have enough juice to push those two fans ?

I’m no expert, but if you already have that stuff running without any problems, then adding 2 Panaflows prolly won’t hurt anything. Go for it. :)

A huge power hungary fan (such as my Antec Tornado, 85 CFM 6500+ RPM) uses about 8 watts. A smaller fan will only use about 4 to 5, so go for it.
