Although if you intend on overclocking I think this is helpful.

But if my PC requires less power overall,does that mean that remaining power will be wasted?

If you have components that use a total of 50 W of power and you put in a 100 W supply then your computer will still just use 50 W of power. You won't "waste power", but your power supply will have more capacity than is being used.
