Just depends on the PSU.
Its all about efficiency and how well it holds up to stress and heat.
For example a 500W high quality PSU may perform flawlessly where as a cheaper 1000W might blow up on you under heavy load/heat conditions.
1000W may seem like a bigger PSU than the 500W, but wattage doesnt always tell the entire story.
