"Most likely"? Your max clock operating load won't vary unless you reconfigure your system with new or different components.

I did burn 750w (rated) one rail PS few years ago hence I bought 1200w.

So now you use a 1200W PS in a 150W system... costing you more every year in wasted electricity than the cost of a correct PS, generating a lot of heat and fan noise?

Since this PS only becomes inefficient (slightly) at almost full power

Actually, the maximum efficiency is at 50-75% load, which is what power supplies are designed for. Efficiency drops above 75%, and drops a lot below 50%.
