...it depends on what other devices are drawing power from the psu. Each device on your pc is a drain on power.

As a rough model: I have two optical drives, two HDDs, three memory modules, floppy drive, card reader, sometimes other usb devices connected. I have a 400watt cpu and it all runs quite comfortably.

Go for something branded/heavy and around 500watt upwards.
