I am planning to buy a gamepad but my PSU is not very good + I have a graphics card. Just wondering if it would be a good idea to buy a gamepad. Does anyone know how much power does an average PC gamepad consume? Is it a good idea to always unplug it if I am not playing any games?

Maximum power a USB can draw is 500ma... no idea how much that is in Watts since it can't be converted, but I don't think its much.
5 watts on usb 2.0. Reading from your other thread, you have an i3 and 6770? on a 600w cm psu. If so you got over 100w to spare. The psu is not good but it's not bad.
