Not sure how much you need if you go tower and busboard with gfx, sound, network, cd-rom, usb etc!!
I think a good quality 150W PSU should be enough for a towered Amiga. Maybe a bit more if it has many HDDs, which need some current for startup.
Many are using insanely powerful PSUs for their PCs nowadays. 300W would be plenty for most PCs and 400W for high-end gaming rigs (except for SLI/Crossfire setups), but people still seem to think that they need a 1kW PSU.. Remember that a quality 150W >> lousy 300W.
