    How much watts I need for a good PSU?

    How do I go about figuring the correct watts PSU to get for a new build. How far do I go over but not waste money on a to powerful PSU. Thanks

    I'd have more faith in that tool if it didn't think that my current rig needs a 1271W PSU. I'm sure those things actually work in VA, not watts.
