My System Specs

Default

Put my new toy the Hampton Energy Monitor onto my downstairs rig to see how many watts that machine was pulling - sans video card - barely broke 110w when I ran the Windows Index (4.0 btw). So I dropped in one of my HD 6670's (it only has room for one such card) and ran the test again - 122w. Adding the video card increased demand by 12 whole watts. I also ran 3D Mark11 to see if that would test it anymore - nope - still a max of 122w. (Mark11 score was 1400 :( ).

So I guess the 300w Sparkling PSU will do just fine, even with the video card installed.

And I'll just stick with the Antec 620m on my A10 rig as I said in another post where I reported on the watts that machine is drawing (320w).

More money for games eh?
