    Powersupply for Radeon X1900GT

    I have a HP DC7100 Minitower with a standard 340W PS, and I am considering
    adding a new videocard.

    It seems like a Radeon (Sapphire or Powercolor) X1900GT will satisfy my
    gaming needs. Will I have to buy a new PS if I want to use such a card?

    The pc also has two harddrives and a DVD-burner.

    You would probably be ok since the PSUs HP use will be of reasonable quality, however a better choice if you are concerned about power consumption would be the nVidia 7900GT. It's literally draws about 40% less power than the X1900GT under full load.

    I second that.
    Give what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose.
