[RC5] Your hardware?

RE: [RC5] Your hardware?I am under the impression that just because the
power supply says 300 watts doesn't mean it constantly uses 300W.  It only
gives the machine what it needs at any point in time.

  it's not really all that much if you think about it, unless you start to
count monitors...

  normal comp power supplies are 250-300 watts, beefed up some are 350-400
(not counting the dual machines of course)

  when you think about it, that's really only 4 100w lightbulbs being on in
the house.

  considering the true ramifications of TURNING OFF my lights at home, i did
a quick figure, and i think i remember that if i left one lightbulb on 24/7
for the entire month it only adds a little over a buck to my energy bill...

  course, i live in TVA land, and my power costs about a nickel per kilowatt
hour... so that helps.
