I really doubt my system pulls no more than 300 watts,am i in?
EDIT- used the PSU calculator,it recommended 370W,only option was a regular 9800GT that uses PSU power.
PSU- Antec Earthwatts 650W.

The calc is way high it says my system needs 1291w with out me adding the H50 lol! And I know I got way more than I need with my 1200.

Did you tell it you had two 295s or 4? It would calculate 4 as in 8 GPUs, which would give you those ridiculous power demands.

Also, to the people complaining about the PSU calculator:

I had to pick a PSU calculator, so that there would be a standard settings. Also, the calculator shows you how powerful your PSU should be, not how much power your computer is using.

Now it seems we have some murky water over what settings to use, so here are the new rules:

Motherboard: High End Desktop
CPU TDP - 90%
System Load - 90%
Capacitor Aging - Leave blank as "Select"

Then take your PSU's rated wattage and divide it by the MINIMUM wattage from the calculator.

Thanks for help, looks like Capacitor Aging can add a bit to the calculator's wattage requirements. Does it apply to solid/non-electrolytic caps? Are there any psus that use solid/non-electrolytic caps?

I'm still sort of surprised/unsettled by how close I'm cutting it (min=689w). Even if the calculator tends to err on the high side. Always thought I went overboard on my psus...I want the headroom for efficiency and such. Maybe it's the extra GTX 285.

edit: I just realized the calculator doesn't even account for overclocked gfx cards...oy...

The calculator is a joke, really.

You aren't stressing that at all, add another 285 if you want.
