Default Article on PC power consumption

Just found this on the nvnews.net forums:-

Overall, what they're saying is that (as we all realise) the high-end gaming PC most likely won't need a 700w+ PSU or anything like it. These guys ran a AMD64 3500, 1GB DDR400, 6800 GT etc on a good quality 300w PSU, perfectly stable.

Last time I measured my PC with my extremely inefficent raidmax PSU, I was using around 200 watts.

Those results they have, seem a bit low however.
