450 or more is good, but you can run it with as low as 250watts. Get an OCZ, antec, zippy, or enrmax, nothing else.

A 250W would do you fine with those specs, i'm running my system fine (specs in sig) off a dell 250W. But i don't know if i would trust the one that came with your computer, what brand is it? I would look at one somewhere in the 350-450W Range, and a good brand like Antec or OCZ.

Usually the power supply's that come with retail PC's are rated well above what they tell you. The 305W power supply that came with my Dell 4700 series was actually rated well above 450 watts according to the Dell tech guy. Your 250W psu should be fine, but I would reccommend that you get atleast a 400W power supply.
