But you can't just divide it.

Ohms law. P = I x V where P=power in watts, I=Amperage, and V=voltage.

432 = I x 12,

423/12 = I

I = 36. Look it up if you dont believe me.

I mean by the watts unless they give you how much % of the power is used.

Oh thanks for the info
So I will get the 650W.
Now I really like the 690. I think I will get that one. I also am starting to like nvidia 690. Which one do yo guys think is better/cool?


*EDIT* But the thermaltake armour is to much for me.

Yeah your right. At first I did not like the 690. But now I actually like it very much. Thanks for the recommendation.
