It uses a bit more than that due to electrical inefficiencies.

nope, much less. here are some data for you to get the idea.

Laptop usually gets 40~90 watts.

Desktop gets 100~200 watts.

the 800 watt is the maxmum fully loaded supply your power supply may reach, so no worry for the electric bill.

So whats more cost effective?

replacing a 400 watt PS every 6 months. Or using the 800 watt for 3 years?

Im to lazy to check my kwh charge but im sure my pc is on 60 hrs a week.

No it does not. 800 watts is the max output.
