    I'm getting ready to build my first system, but not quite sure how big of a power supply I need. Is there a place I can find the number of watts required to run each of the components I'm planning on putting into the system? Or are there certain rules of thumb to go by? Thanks.

    After you determine what size you need allow enough extra power for additional upgrades you may need or want in the future.
