There really should be a warning on that guide. "For Entertainment Purposes Only"

You guys are funny. Maybe warning should be like this: "Read the foot notes before you jump into stupid blames?"

I guarantee that the majority of "high wattage" results are because of user error. Read about System Type!

I recalculated, it says 390 watts...
I loled.

For my setup and normal use I know for certain a 500 watt High quality PSU is required.
Now, If I wanted to go bare bare minimum I would say a continious output of 450-475 Watts.
It doesn't even ask about future upgrades or additions.

So, once again, I go back to what I have always said about PSU calculators.
Don't use them, ask on the forum.
