you need hardware for that, a small device which you plug into the wall outlet, and then you plug in your PC
it will give you Wattage usage

or you could buy a Coolermaster Realpower, the 450 and 550 Watt version have a Wattmeter that you can put in a 3.5" bay.

that meter has been proven be quite inaccurate, more of a gimmick then anything else. It reports values which are too high compared to real life
"4. POWER METER or "Human Computer Interface": The brochure is vague about what this meter monitors. Our testing makes it clear that it is an approximation of the total AC power (watts) drawn by the system. It reads about 10% too high through most of the power range. Realistically, the meter is not accurate enough to serve any function other than some visual entertainment and wow factor. Because it reports the higher AC power input rather than the lower DC power"
