I have a xion 450w psu that came with my case. It is 450w peak load, not 450 continuous! so I went to the psu calculator for advice, and I found out that my computer needs a constant 455watts to run correctly! I need a new psu! No cash though ='(....

First of all, PSU that comes along with the case should not be used. There's a chance that it'll kill itself and take some of your computer with it.

2ndly, XION is such a bad brand.

No way your rig needs 455 conituous watts to run correctly.

Calculator doesn't know if you're overclocking or what you'll be running on the computer. More watts and good rails would be good.

watts arnt everything.. Amps are important to.. a 450W PSU would do fine, if it had like 25a+ on the 12v rails..

yeah it does, I told it my new voltage, my type of processor, my overclock, and it calculates the wattage use
