    Can anybody tell me what I would gain by having a more powerful power supply; currently my power supply is 145 watts. Is there any performance increase to be gained?

    Perhaps a slight increase in response time from the devices used.
    More of a stability issue than performance.

    You may be able run on an empty stomache a number of times, but sooner or later, you won't be able to.

    wow you got alot of stuff there on a 145W psu. No performance gains, but a bigger power suply will help eliminate problems such as underpowering which can lead to crashes reboots etc. Also, you may need the extra grunt if you add more IDE devices etc.
