Lets not let this thread get into if the user should have a 1000w power supply installed in the first place,that is not the question.The question is how much power is wasted when a 1000w power supply is used when a 400w would be a perfect fit. Do not try and make the question into anything other than what it is.The 400w will be operating at its most efficient load range and the 1000w will not be operating at its most efficient load range,what will the "waste" be? Your answer need not need to be exact,it need not be expressed in watts (unless you care to).I would most likely expect an answer expressed in percentage.
