i find that online psucalculators are a load of rubbish

I've been struggling on this build for over 3,5 years now, I don't know if I can last another couple of months.

No need to call any one a fan boy or anything else. Everyone has their personal preference and everyone is entitled to one. I chose to get the G-Skill.

well, do the build minus GPU and with PSU, keep the gt240. theyre not bad tbh. and then get another when you have money. or look on ebay/the sale section here
This is what I think I will do. Thank You for everyone's input and help. It's very much appreciated

Meh .. You may be right. I did use an online calculator.
However, I like to be on the safe side. My PSU will now presumably last longer than most of my other components.
