My System Specs
I bought one of those Hampton Energy Monitor gizmo's and plugged it in.
Ran 3D Mark11 benchmark and played a little Shift2 to see what kind of watts it draws. Range from about 170 to 320w. Actually only saw it over 300 during one of the tests, typically it was in the 250-270 range during testing and the video game (game was actually a little lower in the 220 range.
I also checked the amps and it got up to 2.x (never saw a three) right now its settled in at 1.60 a . My 620m PSU is rated to 25 amp, is that measuring the same thing?
SO - looks like my Antec 620m is way more than I need right now - by almost twice the power draw.
I'll have to connect this gizmo downstairs and see what the old system is drawing on the 300 Happy PSu.
