Default cost to run i7 920?

I've just ordered an i7 920 and other parts...

Wondering approximately what it costs per month to run a basic i7 920 setup (with and without overclocking).

About 400-450 watts with a gaming gpu- add another 180 if you're going SLI/xfire gaming cards. Not sure what your price per watt is but it says on your power bill

Your bill is shown and costed in kwh(kilowatt hours). A kilowatt hour is 1000 watts for 1 hour. So 500 watts consumption in 1 hour = .5 kwh. My power costs 6 cents/kwh so it costs 3 cents per hour +- to run my computer.

...One of the only good reasons to live in a military barracks: no bills.

Well, free food, too.

Really? I never thought anyone would see it as a joke. Then again, now that I think about it, I can see what you mean. It is the internet.
