Default Actual consumtion

When running a calculator it told me a 750W would be best, so how much power is it actually using? because im adding a Nvidia card to do PhysX work to the equation, witch recommends a 350W supply.

Could you not ask this in one of your many other threads that are related either to a third GPU with PhysX or your 2-3 gpu threads?

its a power supply question though, not a GPU question so its more fitting here is it not?

1) You gave no information about what cards you have, what cards you plan to have and what other stuff you might be running in your system. I don't care if it's in your sig, all relevant data should be in the OP

2) From what I see you create a fair number of threads, and this topic has been covered, at very very great length.

1. Bunch of grumpy buggers. If responding to a thread is gonna piss you off why bother?

2. I believe a forum's purpose it to post threads with questions looking for information.

To the OP, no worries, it'll be fine.

...You haven't even said what other card you want to add! How can you garner any information here. We need to know what you will be powering and what exactly your configuration is, for all we know your nvidia card could be a 295, we need SPECS dude, seriously.

I'd guess 380W idle consumption and 700W+ load, but I couldn't say for sure....
