If you have a machine with only 2 hard drives that aren't 10,000 or 15,000rpm 
drives and no other hardware that is power hungry then a 400W PSU is not 

If your hardware is typical desktop hardware then a typical desktop PSU will 
be able to handle the load without any problems.

If you have 15,000rpm disks then power isn't the main problem, the main 
problem is cooling.  Remember, the majority of the electrical power gets 
converted into heat.  The more power you use the more cooling you need.
