    [SOLVED] If a Power Supply is 750 watts, does that mean you pull 750 watts of power also from the wall?

    Title says it, if a power supply is a 750, 950 or 1000 watt power supply, does that mean it pulls out that much power from the wall? To my knowledge I think it's not (correct me if I'm wrong) but if it doesn't then, how much power does a computer usually pull out from the wall?
