So I used Outervision's PSU Calculator and it says I need at least a 750w PSU because the load is 704w. I only put the game and time of using like 8 hours a day. Is it really necessary tho? Only casual use and a bit of gaming like AC, LoL, Rocket League etc... MSI Afterburner never exceeds the 500w mark tho. So which one to trust?

My Current Specs:-
Ryzen 5 2600
AMD Stock Cooler
AsRock B450 Steel Legend
Corsair Vengeance PRO RGB 16GB (8GBX2) 3600Mhz
Sapphire Nitro+ RX580 8GB SE
Patriot Burst 240GB SSD
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD
Super Flower Leadex II Gold 650w 80+ Gold
Phanteks P400A DRGB Black

I put those specs in the calculator and it's telling me your current load is around 379W, which sounds correct given your current setup. There's absolutely no way you're getting 700+W lmao. It's recommended PSU wattage is 429W (we'll call that 450) for a non-overclocked system, and it's recommended to add one or two hundred on top of that for insurance, putting you around 650W max necessity. Unless you plan to upgrade to a higher wattage CPU or GPU, your current 650W is definitely more than enough to get the job done.

Have you been noticing any performance decreases from your PSU?

Nope, not at all.
