sorry but this doesn't merit a sticky unless it were say part of another guide like Cyrax's building guide. a link is not enough.

personally i'm not a big fan of the calculator.

Calculators are good in some ways. For example they give you a remote IDEA of how much "Wattage" you may need however. It doesn't take into account the Quality of the Power supply you buy or any upgrades you do.

This is why You should never get exactly the wattage any given calculator gives you. Should always Buy a quality PSU and one with more then just "sufficent" wattage.

Nope sorry.


I agree with nitestick, I never have been a big fan of these at all.

And I don't like how it only tells you wattage.


12V rails in my mind are more important.

indeed, as the current drawn from any one rail determines whether it will operate. no point having a 460W PSU if that is an 80 Ampere 5V rail and a 5A 12V rail. in my opinion for noobies, it should just be deliberately overestimated. with experience you get something of a "feel" for power requirements.
