Help! Upgrading issue

I heard somewhere that the PSU can only supply so much power, and that if your hardware exceeds that amount of power, you need to get a more powerfull PSU. Is this true? And if so, where can I find out how much of the provided power is my computer using? I am trying to upgrade my processor, and I am stumped on this matter.

Yes its true. A good power supply will be quieter as well.
