I think 350 watt would be adequate... maybe 300... don't know for sure though... I believe mine is 350 watt but too lazy to turn my computer off and check it right now.. maybe some time later I will do that.

Your components will use what they need. It's not going to "fry" them. I have a 650W PSU and it's more than adequate for my components.

Money is the big thing. Why purchase an 800W PSU, for example, if you're never going to use more than 350W? It just isn't cost-effective.

No it won't. You could even go as far as purchasing a 1KW power supply and you will be fine.

This calculator may be useful for you:

It'll give you a general idea of what kind of PSU to get.
