300W, some generic brand.

Shuttle MN31N, with the 12V connector.  The MN31N rocks -- the best
feature is the dualhead built-in video -- the only thing that would
make it better from a Myth perspective is if it had TV out -- but the
dualhead makes up for it.  I can have Myth running on one head and
work on the other.

That's what I'm using with a 2600+ (Barton) -- it's up 24/7 and it's
stable as a rock.
