    Nice to see some PSUs without uber high wattage, though 650W is still at the upper end of what most will need!

    I would say 650watts is the sweet spot for enthusiasts (which this site is aimed at) most with lesser needs tend to buy prebuilt.

    I mean a decent GPU is going to be pulling 250 watts and your processor anywhere from 120-200 watts depending if you went AMD or Intel so without even taking into consideration all the other components thats 450 watts, lets say 100 watts for all the other bits and pieces and thats 550 watts. Leaving you 100 watts headroom for spikes.

    Even If your current GPU is a lower end model that doesnt need 250 watts are you going to buy a PSU that will survive an upgrade or buy a lower watt one that will add another expense come upgrade time? Especially as usually there is a minor difference in price between a 500 watt and a 650 watt.
