Have to balance the cost vs actual utility though. the power draw is 205 watts an hour (the conservative usage for the newer model not the 330watts of the old ps3) *24 hours / 1000 = 4.92 KWH per day *30 = 147.6 kwh a month
based on average cost in the US at .125$ per KWH you are looking at 18.45$ a month just for electricity. This is for 33000 points. I can get 390,000 a month from my 2500k and it costs about a third of the price.
If you can afford the cost or dont pay for the electricity it might be worth it for you.
