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 Laughing to complete the wee beastie Cool

Enjoy the Choice Smile
