What does it take for you to trust people? When you go to the doctor's office, do you make them show you their diplomas, transcripts, and board certifications before they take a look at you?
Doctors? Don't make me laugh. What a bunch of medieval quackery, just like this thread. All Phaedrus's talk about PSU's is medieval quackery as well.

It´s all about future-proofing. Getting an 850w PSU for a sub-par system instead of a 650w WILL inevitably save money, seeing as everyone will eventually do an upgrade that requires more than 650w.

My 750 is a gross exaggeration based on my needs , but I DO want to SLI later and the choice was made with this is mind. I bought it half an year ago , when I had a E8400 and a 8800 GTS, talk about overkill . But I knew exactly how much power would my components take and what I want to do with it later on.

No regular gaming PC will need more than 650 W. And he said "everyone will eventually do an upgrade that requires more than 650w", which is far from true.

Sure, but you also appeared to write off the concept in the same exaggerated fashion as he supported it. Power supplies are one of the few components in a system that do not become outdated within a short time after release, it makes sense to plan for the future when purchasing one.

Not really.
What about people running 3-6 monitors or 6-12 hard drives?
What about people with GTX 580's that might wanna go SLi in the future?
while having 10 1TB HD's?
