I have a build that I am about ready to purchase and the estimated wattage is 335w I was wondering how many wyatt power supply should I get?
At the moment I got a 650w power supply http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-capstone650 Could I go less like a 500w and save like $30? Or is this good enough?

A 500W-550W PSU should be fine.

500-650, depends on whether you're overclocking. 500-550 is enough, like JForce said, but if you want 650 is fine, just don't go over, unless you're planning to SLI/crossfire

Don't trust the average wattage. But yes, that psu should work just fine.
