I've looked at multiple PSU calculators online and they've all given me a range around 600-800 Watts, most being closer to 800 W. However, I've looked at multiple forums that talk about how manufacturers overstate their requirements by a lot, and a lot of my parts have very low requirements. So I have 2 questions:
- Does them overstating their power requirements have any effect on my choice? If so, how do I figure out which PSU I really need?
- More importantly, some of my parts have very low requirements like 200 W, so if I get an 800 W PSU, will that fry my parts?
I apologize if either of those are dumb questions, this is my first custom PC
