    I think you would gain some efficiency if you had a PSU with less output. With that PSU, in idle, you will probably have an efficiency bellow 80%.
    In desktops is not a very good ideia to have a overpowered PSU. Efficency works in curves, so havin a 20% load on a 1Kw PSU can be worse than having 40% in a 700W one.

    Because the 180w is cheaper :p The difference here is way smaller than desktop PCs, so buying a 240W probably won't have the same side effects as stated above.
