    On every computer that I've had, there was/is a sticker on the PSU itself stating everything you would need to know

    this may sound a bit obvious, but the psu is gonna be very hot
    it's probably the component at highest temperature in your system
    throw some water on it to cool it down, that always works

    That's just plain mean.

    Volts x Amps= Watts > check the amps with an ammeter or look for the rating at the power connector
    this won't really work sadly
    it would be too hard to calculate the power precisely due to the number of power outputs in the psu
    there are various outputs (3.3V, 5V and 12V for example), so using this equation would be inneffective.

    Where did you get your system from? If it was from a big name company, you might be able to go to their web site and find detailed specs about your particular model. I know you can do that with a Gateway, at least.
