I am in the process of moving to matx and my current 550W Corsair is overkill for what I need...but I'm unsure what wattage I do need.

Using the Antec calculator I get 206W for an e8200, 2 x 2GB DDR2, matx mobo, 1 green sata drive, 1 dvd r/w, 1 wifi card and HD2400 - but are there any other recommended sites I can double check on?

Thanks...looks like it's the same engine and gave the same result.

Now to look for a 350W modular psu with a 120MM fan!

Just grab a Corsair CX400W. Saw it for £29.99 at a large etailer today. But thing you need to spend over £50 for free delivery.

Use what you have already, the efficiency rises up to 50% load so it should be spot on. No need to replace the PSU tbh.
