My System Specs


If you run the 9800 I would go for a decent 500w for long term use (450w would suffice). Under full load with the components you listed I would expect the computer to pull 250-275w...maybe some peaks a bit higher (if it gets OC'd at all those numbers will go up accordingly). Any Corsair, xfx, seasonic, antec would do fine. Don't grab a cheap 500w as it may be no better than what you have now. If your not going to use a graphics card a 300-350w in those brands would suffice without issue. You can sometimes get the OEM seasonic PSU pretty cheap for the smaller size ones.

What model is the current 300w PSU? It may not be worth buying a new one if your not running the 9800.
