How many Watts should my power supply be rated at?
If your running duals with a few PCI cards, one or two hard drive(s), 2D graphics card; 250W-300W will probably do.
If the dual system is loaded, all PCI slots filled, high-end graphics card, SCSI controller with several devices, HPT366 controller with several hard drives; more like 350W-500W.
I look at it this way. The more stuff you put in the box, the more Watts needed to power all those devices. Remember, a lot depends on the quality of the power supply and how many amps are available on each voltage circuit (+3.3, +5, +12, etc.).
dual = more watts...
