350W will be much more than enough power. My q9450, 4870 1gb, p45 board, 4 sticks ram, 1 hdd, 1 dvd drive, 5 fans, and other minor extras only draw 130W at idle and 250W at load, measured at the wall. I would guess that yours would probably pull less than 90W at idle and maybe 160 full load. I'd keep the stock PSU from the case, and if it was too loud for me I'd do a fanswap. If your reference for sound is an XBox, this probably won't be necessary...
