Well the absolute best way is to look at the nameplate of the power supply. Remove the side panel of the computer case, with the computer OFF. There should be a nameplate on the power supply that will tell just what is being asked. Most PS for that style/model are no more than 300 watts.

One of the important numbers on the label is the 12 volt amperage along with the total wattage. Follow TheOldMan's advice.
