Wow... I'm impressed !

I guess the "PSU calculators" just tend to be very conservative to ensure no one runs into issues then? Or this hardware is particularly easy on power consumption? I recall 3-4 years ago I believe I tried to go for lower power usage in that rig, so that would make some sense...

Edit: Uhh, I really like hardware.fr, but these numbers of power usage are a bit shocking. My new Radeon 6950 uses just about exactly as much power as my old 9800GTX+? I'd have never guessed. (Though that'll obviously be corrected once I flash it to 6970 )
