Software can't tell you anything useful about your power supply.

Your specific 650W model hasn't been reviewed. However the 400W, 460W, 500W, 550W, and 600W models have all been reviewed by Gabe Torres at hardwaresecrets.com. Not one of them can do their rated wattage; either they blow up, or the voltage drops out of spec and they shut down, or the ripple goes so far out of spec it could damage your computer.

Wonderful...Thanks Phaedrus. That's why I came on here! I guess I'll have to order a new one. Was hoping to save some money after that big purchase of buying all those parts at once.

Thanks again!
