I have an Antec Trupower 300W.

I have a Asus A7N8X-VM/400 (has onboard video) with an Athlon XP2500. 
No, the board does not have the newer separate 12V connector.

My system runs very stable and cool.  BUT,  I use the onboard video
and only have a PRV250, BTTV card, and a wireless card in it -- Not
really much demand.  Maybe if I added a newer power-hungry video card
and played video games, I may want a larger power-supply, but 300W is
more than enough for my full-time living room mythbox.  I really
beleive that quality is more important than size.
