It's terrible.
It said my system would use nearly a 1000 watt with crossfire, while my watt meter said 500 while playing BF3 (GPU and CPU intensive)
The fan on my PSU changes color when it's stressed, it never changed color.


If you think your current 750w PSU will kill your system while you only need 500w, replace the 750w with a 500w. It will give you a piece of mind.

All i'm saying is, don't believe any of these calculators.
Test things yourself with a voltage meter.
