Should i get a 300w psu

A system with a 3200g using interested graphics isn't going to consume much power. Problem is there aren't many good 300w power supplies out there. 

 

Having only 4gb ram would suck though since it needs to share memory with the graphics, and you won't have dual channel.

There aren't really any 300W PSUs that I know of that are good quality-- almost any PSU will have enough wattage for this, the question is whether it's reliable. I'd look at the PSU tier list and find something decent quality that isn't crazy expensive.

Right.  Like he said... There are no good quality 300W PSUs.  The Kolink is not good quality.

There are some Seasonic OEM PSU with 350W, maybe even a 300W. They don't have the fancy sleeves and molecularity, which is fine for most PCs.

 

Other than that, the "good" PSU start at around 400W. It turns out, to manufacture a good 300w PSU cost almost the same as manufacturing a 400W PSU. And people who are on this forum and care about PSU usually have more power needs. So the market and profit margins are not great for 300W "good" PSU. 

 

99% of the 300w PSU are in PCs. They only need to last for the 1-year warranty.......
