    A friend with a similar system recently upgraded his 300W to a 400W because he was experiencing some problems when ever he used his CD-Writer.

    Problems fixed.

    I don't think you'd have that much "headroom" left in it personally. But if it's working fine, and you don't intend on adding anything more for a while, just stick with it.
