Comment reply on mister_scamp's Completed Build: From zero to hero... hopefully

I debated about this too. I was thinking a 550 at first but read and looked at the charts about the PSU efficiency curve that shows that they are most efficient if your consumption is right in the middle of the total wattage. This site showed my build at 382W right in the middle of 750W, but as it turns out most of the time at modest work load I'm actually using <100W, so yeah in hind sight I wish I had gone with a smaller unit.
