Wasn't sure how to word the question to find an answer though searching. Let's say I make a build on here and the calculated wattage is something like 741W. I know the total wattage of the system isn't 100% accurate and will be more or less, but would it be fine getting a 750W PSU, or is it smarter to get something that'll deliver more wattage like a more expensive 800W or more PSU, just to give it some headroom? Also, would overclocking and voltage increases make more of a difference?
(Assume that any power supply I choose is no less than 80+ Gold)
