    Hey everybody? just a quick question. I'm trying to find a reasonably inexpensive but quiet/cool, of course, case. I'm looking at the antec sonata now with 350W. But I'll be using 3 harddrives (7200) in the machine. Is this adequate power and what would the temps be in this midtower case with 3 hd's?

    Any help is appreciated,

    The more power you have the more headroom you have within the system to allow for any extra power consumption. Minimum power these days should be close to 400W. The more the merrior..just think about it that way. Im sure the price difference is minimal. Look into Antec or Enermax PSU's.
