I actually have one somewhere but can't find it. At any rate, that would only tell me total system power usage. I ended up getting a 7970 Tahiti LE. Hopefully I can still use the GTX 260 for PhysX. I think the PSU will just make the cut.id recommend getting a kill-a-watt meter to see how much the actual draw is.
Why do you guys keep recommending that? Kill-a-watt sucks for reactive loads, and besides, you need to know the exact figure for the efficiency of your PSU at your specific power level for you to even get a figure for the actual component power draw. KAW is essentially useless, regardless of how many people on this forum keep recommending it. It's a waste of money. Hell, even cheap VOLT meters are inaccurate junk, and power metering is much more difficult than voltage metering.id recommend getting a kill-a-watt meter to see how much the actual draw is.
I am waiting as long as possible to upgrade the CPU. It is currently OC to 3 GHz and I know it will do at least 3.2. Will hopefully be able to skip this generation and the next. For the time being, Eyefinity should keep the CPU from bottle necking . Also have a lot of slightly older games to work through.you know, i actually was wondering if the Q6600 would bottleneck the 7970? IRC, the Phenom II are roughly equal to the Core 2 uarch in terms of IPC.
