Yeah mate the only thing with it I have found now is that it doesn't list some things such as the GTX 650 GPU in GPU's - but I suppose they can't list everything eh?

But on the whole it's pretty useful. Just wondering if the others like Giga and Asrock do something similar - will check out and get back to everyone / anyone who finds this helpful.

This looks just as good http://www.thermaltake.outervision.com/

Yeah Chris most of the Thermaltake is based around this one I think as for Giga and Corsair (my favourite) I can't find one just yet but this'll do

Good finds John! It should be noted that the ASUS calculator can be used with any system.
I need a bigger PSU.

I ran my system on the calculator and it tells me I need a minimum 650W supply which is much higher than any of the other power supply calculators I have used.

Me thinks they are skewing results to high power supplies for their own (tech support) reasons!

Well I am leaning toward what you have stated TV as my build if I ever get to doing it has components which makes my planned HX 650 look as if it will not go the distance.

Calc seems to over-estimate the minimums. That tool recommends at least an 800watt PSU for my system.
I am chugging along with my Antec 650watt PSU just fine.

Yes I must apologise for the post it looked good but seems like I have made a bit of a gaff again.
