Yes but the 250w/unit you stated was gross overestimation. Even 200W is overestimation unless you only "play" Furmark all the time. However, I also think that the maximum value is the safest figure to go by. I know it's estimation, but base factors should also backed by data in order to arrive at a usable figure. Garbage in = garbage out.
