The same error or complaint "you have too much......" can be placed on many different components within the PC, not just the P/S. Isn't anyone going to take up the cause of "too much RAM" or "too much cpu", or "too much hard drive space". At least with the P/S buying a 850w when you really only need a 500W is not such a tremendous difference in cost.Pretty much harmless. I will comment I have never been harmed by "too much wattage".
