About this item
Most 1800 watt PSUs specify the maximum number of watts they output, usually between 200 watts and 1800 watts. To figure out how many watts you need to power your computer, you should itemize the components with their individual power demands and sum them to arrive at a total.
You can use the estimates provided in the next section or an online calculator such as the PSU Wattage Calculator from Thermaltake that provides a detailed questionnaire, including how you plan to overclock your computer, to help you arrive at the total wattage required.
Typical Power Requirements
As a general rule of thumb, an AGP video card uses between 30 and 50 watts of power. A PCI Express video card uses 50 to 150 watts, or it might use 150 to 300 watts if it has an additional power connector on the card.
Regular PCI cards consume between five and 10 watts. A CD or DVD drive will take about 20 to 30 watts and a hard drive consumes between 15 and 30 watts. Your motherboard probably uses 50 to 150 watts, and each stick of memory requires about 15 watts.
The processor needs between 80 and 140 watts of power. Now times this by 8, 1800 watt PUS is the ideal choice
