          If you're not going to use a discrete graphics card with it, since it's rated at 95w, I can't see a system loaded with fans and hard drives pulling even close to 250w.

              No discrete card to be installed...so you think a 300-350 watt will suffice?

                  What  happens in a year or two when you decide to include discreet graphics? For a few extra bucks a 550 or so PSU will be there waiting for the new vidcard.

                Yea, but I would look at PSUs up to 550w. The price difference between, say, the SeaSonic SSR-360GP 360w and the SeaSonic S12G-550 550w is only $15.
