    Yeah, pretty insane! Especially the line that said today's top of the market video card only uses 285w of power!

    /must remember to build EMR shielding inside of case.


    Hopefully they have enough airflow to keep that bad boy cool, or include a cupholder to keep the coffee hot.

    What video card takes up that much?

    The newer ones are dropping back down from the last generation.

    I would HOPE they meant an SLI set-up and the total power consumption.

    EDIT: As seen below even the last generation in singles dont take up much power AT ALL....

    Luckily, I have all utilities included within my apartment. When I moved out of my house, my parents said the electric bill went down about $125 a month...

    heh, just had to...

    wat comp uses that much power, perhaps turning it off at night and when you go to work (if you work), would drastically reduce the bills.

    its really not that great. Each 12v rail only has 18A so its equivalent to a 250-300W psu on each output. To be any use it really needs to have 20A or more on each output.
