    Then you can go down to the 400 or 450W, as there are hardly any decent quality PSU with lower wattages than that.

    The only example is the FSP-250-60EGA.
    That is a decent quality, 250W Gold PSU...

    Only if we are talking about two completely different units.

    FOr example be quiet Dark Power Pro P11, 550-750W vs 850W

    It follows physics.
    YOur mistake is to think of PSU as some time of Motor. FOr example your car. A 230hp car might be quieter at 130kph than a 90hp one because its reving not as high.

    But we're...
