Using the Calc will help you keep from being wasteful and going over.

ETA: Some players report that "overcapping" does provide some buffer against things like Weapons Drain, but the results are inconclusive. Example discussion thread:
I don't actually have the Calc itself as I don't have any Excel software yet.
Will look into that free office thing you linked when I get around to min/maxing a bit more.

Power drains were the main things I was thinking of with the overcapping, as to what figure they were working on, and if you should be drained below the cap would you then gain all the bonuses.
