This text-based calculator was an attempt by me to decrease my workload from "overwhelming and frustrating" to just "large and mildly irritating". wink.gif Being asked twenty times a day how much wattage someone's computer needed--not what I signed on for as PSU Editor. So I created a text based calculator that I could direct people to so they could use my logic and numbers on their own, or for others on this forum to use, without having to ask me personally. It succeeded... Mostly. wink.gif

However, things change. And so I'm proud to present to you,

PSU Calc

The actual application version of this calculator that I am developing in conjunction with FiX (who is doing all the hard work wink.gif). It is still in beta, but is nearing completion. Please go there for your PSU wattage calculation needs and PSU recommendations. It uses an improved version of the math found in the original Quick'n'Dirty text-based calculator and is much more accurate.

Is this because your thread got closed?

This is awesome btw. I'm glad to know I might be able to upgrade, just barely. (750W, 1 580, i7 2600k)

My thread got closed because it got out of hand. I could unlock it, but I have no intention of doing so, due to the level of immaturity displayed by several members.

OP sounds good.

Thank you Phaedrus. This is a much appreciated and needed contribution to OCN.

I suggest a link from this sticky to the recommended PSU sticky and a link in that sticky to this one. And maybe a quick line about how PSU requirements are inflated with a link to proof. For an example Nvidia says a system with their GTX590 requires a 700w PSU as a minimum.

Bookmarked. Awesome info, thanks so much.

Awesome idea. Can see this needing a sticky.

Edit: will this also cover 100% folding or just normal usage?

It's already stuck bro.

Normal usage. For folding I'd multiply final result by 1.5. I'll add that to the guide.
