How much wattage do I need?


Nov 27, 2012
Sorry, I know I'm asking a lot of questions here lol.

My set up right now is:

- AMD A6-5400K Trinity 3.6GHz

- MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0

- Western Digital WD Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM

- ASUS 24X DVD Burner

- TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Wireless N Dual Band

And my logitech unifying usb for my keyboard and mouse. I will also be using some external hard drives on it as well. Not sure if that's valuable information. I've used the wattage calculator on Newegg and this other site but it's telling me about 800w which is a lot and my system isn't even meant to be for gaming or home theater. I know some people who have gaming PC's who don't even use 800w so I thought that was a bit fishy.
