Your PSU is not determined so much by your motherboard...as it is by all the other components of your system, as these are the items which will draw most of the power.

You will not find a motherboard which specs a given PSU.

I think of the motherboard as a "switchboard" of sorts, facilitating the interaction of the various other components in a system.

I think like hamluis in this case. A mother board is a big multi function switch. It other words it tell other thing what to do and then some times checks up on them. Most systems that one builds rather than buying complete is a combo of many things and they all take different needs of power. So the question; how much power supply do I need. My opinion is very simple. Get from 30 to 50 % more than you need. Reason is simple. If you need a 500w power supply and you will be working it 80 to 90 % the voltages may not be stable and you will have to get a better P/S if you add things. If you need 500w get 1000w and it will just glide along in it's mid range. It won't over heat because your are not humping it. The voltages will be more stable; why because your not humping it. A well regulated voltage is love by all other things in your computer. If you want to save money a power supply is not the place to do it. I don't have any charts or grafts or web sites to prove it, it just makes cents or maybe dollars.
