If your system is using a lot of power, you want to buy a 80+ certified PSU. You also want to run it at or near 50% load to optimize efficiency. Of course, if you don't use your PC 12 hours a day, then the power cost will not be to bad. Four hours a day @ 1kw power consumption is 115$ a year in my region.
