If you give us the make and model of your computer, we can look up the system specs. and see if it's listed. Other than that you'll have to open it up and look at the label

If you are looking at the wattage for a future Video card upgrade. The total wattage isn't as important as the individual 12v rails. Depending on the model of video card you get you need at least a combined or total of 32 watts for the 12v rail. For example a Rosewill RX630-S-B 630 watt power supply has 4 12v rails at 20 amps each totaling 80 amps. That's a pretty stout power supply.

Output document.write(neg_specification_newline('+3.3V@24A,+5V@24A,+12V1@20A,+12V2@20A,
+12V3@20A, +12V4@20A,-12V@0.5A,+5VSB@2.5A'));+3.3V@24A,+5V@24A,+12V1@20A,+12V2@20A,
+12V3@20A, +12V4@20A
,
-12V@0.5A,+5VSB@2.5A
