It will save him $200 for the power bill for two years and it lasts 3+ years

And since it is just the APU he can get a high-end FM1 motherboard and overclock the bus clock and boom everything goes faster

I would recommend waiting for the multiplier unlocked llanos if they ever would come out or the lower tdp products

Ummm, that PSU would save him MAYBE $10 a year in power. His build isn't going to use much power at all to begin with.

  • 20% 80.74%
  • 50%83.65%
  • 100% 80.64%

Input power at 20% -> 109.41 Watts
Output -> 88.33 Watts
Input power at 50% -> 262.80 Watts
Output -> 219.84 Watts
Input power at 100% -> 544.10 Watts
Output -> 438.79 Watts

  • 20% 91.64%
  • 50% 92.88%
  • 100% 90.99%


Input power at 20% -> 124.85 Watts
Output -> 114.1 Watts
Input power at 50% -> 307.40 Watts
Output -> 285.50 Watts
Input power at 100% -> 626.90 Watts
Output -> 570.44 Watts

Avg. System power consumption with the A8?-3850 is about 125-150~ Watts
and if overclock goes around 175-200~ Watts

This assumes a 12 Cent/KwH energy rate, if you pay more for your electricity, then the numbers will be slightly higher.

This also assumes the computer is running an average of 10 hours per day, again if your computer is on longer, then your savings will be greater.


But, this argument is pointless it is up to him to spend $40 or $140

If your power supply in your P4 works just fine you should use that

I went from 80 Plus Bronze to 80 Plus Gold and saved $200, (My computer is on 24/7)
