huh?   my system uses about 200-250 watts actual line current running 
full tilt, its a core i5-3570k overclocked to 4.2ghz, with 16gb ram, 1 
250GB SSD and 2 3TB HDs... it also has a cuple PCI IO cards in it, and a 
NVidia 640 GT video card.  Its got a 450W PSU, which is plenty.

the only people that need 600W+ PSUs are running two or more high end 
video cards
