Default Re: Q9550 OEM Question

You can see here how much a system with a Q9550 can consume power:
Power Consumption - Review Tom's Hardware : System Builder Marathon: $1,250 Mid-Range PC

It's from tomshardware system builder marathon. They're using a Q9550 with a 4870X2. You can see the GPU and CPU separately, the system is the dark blue bar. Keep in mind though the 4870X2 draws way more power than a regular 4870. And I also notice you're running 3 hard drives which would make a difference too.


Random movie quote to make you seem hip and "with it":
"Please take the chairs away. I don't like them. The big one is staring at me and that short one is being very droll."

So it draws 480watts under load ? I should be fine then.. i'll probably draw 540ish.

Thanks for that.
