PC required wattage software?



So, I am planning to upgrade my psu as it is not good, i am what psu I should get, I would base my psu off the wattage of PC but I can't really get a exact number anywhere, is there a software that could help me with that?


Thanks in advance.

PCPartPicker is generally pretty good at guessing the wattage.

Otherwise just looking at reviews for your CPU and GPU can get you a pretty clear image of what you need too.

Or just asking on this forum.

there are calculators, but most are known to overestimate heavily. i find msi and be quiet to do it the least


the best way i find personally is to take your cpu and gpu's review (watch out with the difference between full system and card power usage), add 50w and you have an estimation of your used wattage
