PSU wattage


Recommended Posts

I've been rebuilding my HTPC and it sounds like the PSU is about to die (fan is juddering and making odd noises).

I want to get a fanless-PSU to replace it, and was thinking about wattage. I've put a power meter on the mains lead and it's running about 160 watts, never going above 180W even when under load. Does this mean a 200W PSU is sufficient for me, or is there more to it? Would like to keep it as low as possible
