    A power supply only draws the power needed by the computer system, plus another 20% or so due to inefficiency. I've got a 620w psu, the max I've drawn (from the wall) is around 300w.

    The power rating on a psu is simply an indication of the amount of power it could provide, not what it draws all the time. I doubt there's many people on this forum who could draw anywhere near 1000w without some serious effort.

    Afcource it works that way. But if someone needs a 1000w PSU then he/she would probably need the power. Why whould someone buy a 1000w PSU if the PC is only pulling 330w from the wall. (I guess its stupidity)
