150 watts would not light a candle on the typical video/GPU even one of the on-board chips needs a bit more than that :wink: But it's never good to scrimp on the PSU get the best you can afford and the highest wattage as well down the line you most likely want a greedy piece of kit :lol: to complete the wee beastie 8)

Enjoy the Choice :)
