must have typed something wrong in the calculator. but what you did dosent make any sense either. that would be around 466$ and i know it isnt that much.
i think i did the calcualation for a month not a year
Yeah I highly doubt his computer would draw that much power. Theirs actaully tools to measure how much power a device draws.
My computer, peak power consumption is 200W. This is a 130nm 3400+, 2x 7200 drives, 2x DVD-RW, 6800GS, 4x 512 RAM, lots of fans, sound card, 3com NIC. I doubt many peoples computers would draw as much power as mine.
