    Question More watts bad?

    I was going to get a nzxt e500 but the e850 is on sale for cheaper than the e500. Would this be bad to use a 850w psu even though I don’t need all that power? Also would the 850w use more electricity than the 500 watt because I don’t want a higher electricity bill.
