    ( PSU Wattage + LCD Wattage ) * 2 At Least!

      Looking for an inverter for example it says 300W and 1000W peak.....should all my electronics equipment add up to less than the true power or peak power? If you get what i mean? haha

      thanks

        Theoreticaly an 300W/1000W inverter works if you use a 300W consuming hardware. When you switch your hardware on, it can consume peek wattage which in your case is 1000W. Theoreticaly.

        As a rule, you should use at lease double what you theoreticaly need. So I f you r PSU+LCD consumes lets say 350W, it would be a good Idea to use an 600W+ inverter. Inverters are NEVER what they are advertised to be!

          Your equipments power draw should add up to less that the true or RMS power...otherwise you risk barbecuing your inverter...while it's in your car...fun stuff.
