I have used this Power Supply Calculator in the past when trying to answer these questions.

Although 'neat' I never rely on a PSU calculator to tell me what I need for a computer.

Agreed. It does give you a rough idea where you should be looking at if you have no idea.

Not to mention it is more important to calculate the required amps, not just wattage. Many times people wondering if their PSU is sufficient have a lower quality/wattage. These often have a high 5/3v, but a lower 12 volt.
