well considering that i just did my system, and it claims i need at least 900w for my system. and yet my kill-a-watt shows nothing near that with over the top power consumption of transcoding and bitcoin/folding/gaming. that site would be an extremely high guess for power consumption.

your best estimate for power use if you want, is other people really. look up a setup like what you want, and look up its power consumption. but remember this. all gpu's are suppsoed to use no more than 300w. as per pci-e/atx standards. ati's next gen 7970 uses around 190w per card. only the dual gpu cards by ati use around 300w. the 580 uses around 280w single card.

unless you're playing bf3 or something of that nature. you dont really need more than 1 graphics card to run two 30" screens. a 6700/560 can easily run both screens of that size and resolution for osu and any low end games.(say cod, l4d2 and the like)

i can tell you now corin, i have 8hdd's 2 optical drives 12gb ddr3 and 3 gpu's, AND an overclocked cpu(3.6-3.8ghz, and occasionally 4ghz), and i use no more than 700w furmark/bitcoin/gaming. idle is 260w.

i dont get why people think they need a massive power supplies when the hardware doesn't need it. maybe when i throw waterblocks on my two 5870's and overclock them i'll need more than 850w, but stock clocks, i dont.

My PC:

You were both saying?

Also this PC is a singlecore w/ an 8500 and 2.5GB RAM, js.

Lolno, it's inaccurate as poot. It can give you a rough estimate, but nothing you can really use as compared to the amount stated by the manufacturers.


I would give you a real reading from a wattmeter, but I have yet to borrow such a thing.

Doesn't sound right lol. Or maybe? i'm pretty sure i gave the correct information to calculate my estimated power usage.

That page gives you a general idea but it's not accurate.
