  1. antec.outervision.com will tell you what wattage power supply you will need for your pc.
  2. If you want to find out exactly how much power you're pulling 'from the wall' then you'll need a plug-in tester which will tell you you're actual power consumption in watts.
  3. yeah for that you can just get the cheapest version of the kill-a-watt meter

    That's the boy, couldn't think of what they were called :sarcastic:
  5. Great little gadgets. Just remember, they indicate power from the wall not from the PSU to the computer. You need to multiply that figure by the efficiency of the PSU to calculate what the computer is pulling from the PSU.
