    The max the PC will consume is ~200W, so a 300/400W PSU is more then enough.

    So you doubled it and are looking at 850 watt ??

    Often there are many more economical/higher availability units at 500 and 550 watts than there are at 400 and 450watts.

    However, there is no reason to go higher than 550 watt. Gold or PLAT 450 will also never break a sweat.

    That's why PSU calculators don't work.

    USB devices use 500mA. That's half an amp. You don't need to add 100W for a USB device.
