Power Supply Calculator
I've seen a few to date, but this one is simply impressive in the breadth and level of details covered. Besides overclocking, you can factor in Peak Utilization, Capacitor Aging (Explained at the end of the page), and Surge Compensation which deals with the power surge required when you first power on the system from a cold start. From my experience trying to calculate what my main rig draws, the number given was very accurate.

I think we should have an area in the site for keeping decent links like this just incase you forget them.
A handy "Links" section for overcloacking tools, small programs, and other tools like the PSU calculator.
Thanks Couger for the repost, I may be buying a new one soon. It never hurts to plug in the #'s.

I cant believe my Neo Power 480 will do Crossfire for me!
Everyone told me I would need as least 500 watts.
With my specs.,,it said 460 will do.

Total watts is one thing but the amount of amps is another especially for all the highend GPUs.
