Power Supply Usage

I'm looking for software that will show how much wattage is being used.  Is there a free application for this?

The only information available from mobo monitoring is voltage.  You cannot calculate even approximate power useage with only one parameter.

watts (power) = volts x amps (current) for a pure resistance load.
