    If you're asking where the other 240W is going to, it's not going anywhere. It's staying in the mains.

    The PSU will only supply your PC with as much power as it needs, so if it needs 410W, then it'll only give it 410W :) The 650W rating is just the maximum that the PSU can put out, it's not what it is using all the time.
