It might not be the most glamorous of components, but a good power supply can be key to building a PC that will last a very long time. Today's supplies are better than ever, with lofty efficiency claims and clean delivery that bodes well for the health of other vital parts.

Better still, with the increased frugality of today's CPUs, GPUs and storage devices, our wattage requirements tend to have reduced dramatically, making it easy to pick up a quality supply without breaking the bank. For this week's question, we're asking simply: what wattage is your power supply? Let us know using the comments facility below, and we'd be intrigued to learn whether you consider your current capacity to be sufficient in the long term, or whether you reckon an upgrade will be needed somewhere down the line.

Currently its 875w, handled 290x crossfire nicely, easily powers my now single RX580.

With the efficiencies being made in new parts I may never need to change it (of course it will fail one day).
Still using the Corsair TX 650 I won in a competition on here. Only got a stock Core i7 and 1070 GTX to power so no need to go big.
Corsair HX850i, uses around 50W idle (80+ efficiency) and about 350W load (90+ efficiency). No need to upgrade as this is a fairly new build. Last PSU was a Corsair AX750 which was pretty solid.
750W, and even that is overkill for an mATX system. I only got it because it was cheaper than the 650W I was going to go for.
