no way. 20 bucks a year?! and 500 watts an hour means what exactly? how much watts would u say ummm. celegorm's e6600 2gb ram and 8800gts comp uses an hour? and that doesnt make sense. 500 watts times 24 hours times 365 days is 4380000 and u divide 1000(kilo) and then u multiply by 10.65 cents. thats not 20 bucks.

I would rather pay a little extra to get superior performance per watt. It's just the logical choice unless you're that big of a penny pincher.

im probably am wrong but 500 watts would be almost peak for celegorms computer. the reason you have to have say a 700 watt PSU is because the efficency rating of a PSU is well under 100%

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.

EDIT:
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.

In England my electricity is 8.81p/kw hour, about 9 cents, plus VAT at a lower rate of 15% [normally 17.5%]

Our road's meter clocks are all broken at the moment, so all our eleccy is free for a good few weeks, all servers are on full pelt at the moment, normally to run them all it's about 40 a month, but it's freeee

Intel Benches look nice!
