750 or 850 would be best.

Phaedrus2129,

Would you recommend something like a Kill A Watt meter? The more I read and try to understand the more tools I want to get to help me get a better idea as to what I'm dealing with and so I can give better advice instead of leading someone in the wrong direction.

Kill-A-Watts are generally not accurate below 80w and above 800w.
They also have some problems with a few different units because of the APFC circuitry inside of them. Not to say their is anything wrong with the PSU though.
They're not bad devices though; cheap and do their job pretty well.

A better power meter is going to cost around $100 though.

I know I'll be over 80 on this plug all the time, CP + Monitor + Router + Modem + Klipsh Sub = not sure. I like the cost of it, $16 on the egg atm, might through it on my order in the next day or two.

Excellent read. From what you have stated. Is there a better way for us to calculate what is needed for a given system?
Take for instance; Graphic's cards. Trying to find wattage usage is kinda iffy. I'll see one number here, a different number there, etc. Same with CPU usage. Yes I can find stats like a i7-950 is a 130W cpu. But, is that at 100% load? Base idle Watts? Especially now that since it seems that CPU frequency's have Hovered around 3-4Ghz, but power is being reduced. Like the SB Intel chips.

Taking from what I read about your article, basically on a i7 2600k system, 8G ram, 2x 560ti with a few HDDs. A quality 650w PSU is more than enough.
Am I correct? Wrong?

Just don't run Furmark and CPU benches at the same time.

You're cutting it close, but your cutting it with arguably the best PSU on the planet regardless of wattage.
Yep, Seasonic FTW
