    Get the M2 or M4?

    So im not quite sure if my PC will need the M2 or M4 power supply. I like the M2 cause it looks like its more "user friendly" as far as programming the settings compared to the M4. Also Ive tried several different power calculators and ive gotten results as low as 130 watts to 250 and everything in between. Based on this setup what would you guys recommend?

    Intel microATX MB
    P4 2.4GHz Northwood (60Watts)
    1.5GB DDR Ram (3 chips)
    1 7200 3.5" HDD
    1 PCI wireless network card
    USB for GPS, memory stick, wireless keyboard etc.
    Ill be using the onboard video and sound.

    Well it all depends on preference. Me, I like to leave room for adding things later to my setup, so I went with a OPUS 320. Which is 320 watts of power. I think my setup is usuing about 200 watts with all the things I have.

    Because of all the USB devices you plan to use, I'd go with a PSU that has plenty of amperage on the 5v rail.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
