No gaff at all John. It's the calculators making the gaffs so the PSU companies can sell higher priced units.

It's not bad, however like i said it gives a very rough estimate and rounds up...way up.
Anyways Let's not ruin this thread and instead let's make it stronger by updating it.

1)eXtreme Power Supply Calculator A power supply calculator most likely affiliated with thermaltake.

2)MSI Global ? Power Supply Calculator by MSI

3) Antec PSU Calculator It used to work for me however last 2 days it's been offline it may have been shutdown.

4) ASUSTeK Computer Inc. -Support- Recommended Power Supply Wattage Calculator Asus

Using all these together one can get a rough estimate of what they will need. Other than that all one can do is look up the numbers and do the math.

Chris, John had linked all of those except for the MSI one.
Using the others it gave me around 650W, which is what I have. The MSI calculator says 453W, add 25% for overhead = 566W so they all are kinda sorta ok.

I think PSU power is similar to gun ownership. It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

Hum I found another one called PSU Calc that is very popular with the overclocking crew at Overclocking.net and apparently there were some bugs to be sorted and it's been finalised. However my security red flags it so I am not game to try it.

Oh and yet another for the tech heads but it s on another forum but has really useful links for PSU tutorials, info, pics of good and bad and reviews all in glorious colour.

I don't know if this has been listed.
Extreme Power Supply Calculator

And Corsair does have one, but I wouldn't recommend it.
