The whole "Wattage" craze is ridiculous. Unless you're rocking SLI setups with two GTX690s (or the Radeon equivalent) that require two 6 pin connectors each, and have 9 drives running besides, you will never need more than 500/550 W in your PSU.

My current rig has a 500W PSU and it runs just fine. 2 SSDs, one data drive, one DVD drive, GTX660ti, i-2500K.

Well, it is an old one from my former Windows XP Pro. SP3 machine. I decided to get a new one since my old Debian/Linux's PSU was crap (Antec) -- making noises already within a year.
