Default Article on PC power consumption

Just found this on the 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.

AMD X2 4400+ Toledo 1MB/Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe/2GB Kingston HyperX/SLI Gigabyte 7800 GTX 256MB/Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS Plat w/ Creative Inspire 6.1 speakers /180GB Hitachi PATA/19\" AG Neovo F-419 LCD/OCZ PowerStream 600W PSU/WinXP Home SP2

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.
