Re: would this psu be OverKill?
Power Supplies if I'm right are more energy efficent at around 80% load and above.
If you got that 1000 watt, it would only output what it needs, yes, which will probably end up to be around 550-600 watts, BUT, the power supply will not be working that efficently at this 50% figure.
Whereas if you got a 650 watt power supply, and was using 550-600 watt's of power, it'd be around 80% or more efficent so you'd probably actually get less heat output, so less waste.
Am I right?
