*thats even without reminding the "headroom", or whatever is called that you should leave a little bit
wat unused when you buy PSU
No, I'm not mistaken, your current system with integrated graphics would run on a 300W unit without a problem

This is highly, highly dependent on what exact GPU you get. The 400-watt (and up) units I suggested above would be fine for a GeForce GTX 460 or a Radeon 6870. Beyond that, probably not really enough.

Because PSU calculators are wrong basically. The good thing about them is that if you follow their advice, you will never buy a PSU that's too weak for your system. But you will also pay more money than you have to, for a PSU you don't need.
Really if you add a GTX 460 or a Radeon 6870 to your system, a good 400-450W unit would be perfect.

A PSU with higher output allows for expandability but is not necessary for you right now.
