Any tips on picking the right wattage of a PSU? So far all I do is check the watt specs of the hardware I use and guesstimate from there.

There are calculators out there that will absolutely make certain you select a powerful enough unit. Just google "psu calculator" :)  They usually calc high.

Or, list your cpu choice and graphics card(s) and we'll help.

Go to new egg go to psu area and enter your pc stats and it will give you power recomendations. from there a good antec earthwats or a corsair modular power supply should do ya well.

Or simply consider that a good 550 - 600 watt PSU (Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, etc.)will power any CPU and any video card with a single GPU.

all you really need is a 500 watt power supply

it dosnt matter what you use as long as you dont have mroe than 1 graphics card and if you do you wouldnt be asking here for it

its better to go for a higher wattage than you need becasue it only draws as much as it needs to and no more

This is just what I did. Newegg estimated that I need a 631watt psu. I think I'm gonna go with a 700watt or higher depending on price and etc.
