The modern PSU work most efficient in the 50%~80% load of the rated power. U can save some money for buying lesser powered PSU as well. For a quick wattage calculation, refer here http://www.extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.js... gegegelo December 4, 2012 6:55:07 AM Okay Thank you. 600W will be fine for PSU components wattage capacity loss, and future upgrade of GPU if i choose 650 Ti and overclocking. I might add other devices/peripherals. and is there a bottleneck of RAM and MOBO/CPU? Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer ttcboy December 4, 2012 7:17:10 AM If u plan to upgrade in the future, just crunch in the parts that u would like to upgrade and see whether ur PSU will be able to handle. Another pointer is that to make sure u have enough PCI-E power connectors to cater it as well. There will be no bottleneck either from RAM or CPU for ur set-up and all are good.
