Default Power Supply Watts

Any other way of knowing how many Watts your PSU has besides opening your case??

I dont think so, just whip open your case and it will be staring at you..

Total Power Output is what your looking for.

If its prebuilt, its going to be around 350Watts - fact (unless its a pre-built super gaming computer).

But if its just an everyday computer, 350Watts-400Watts.

No, I dont think there is something like that. Just open your case the best way to do it.
