Running this PC 24 hours a day..Should i worry about the electronical bills?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am running a game server, which is running 24/7 a week..
Considering im just a college student, without work, i dont have much money to lose.

I dont have any tools to see how much Kwh my PC is using..

Can someone estimate it for me? smile.gif

CPU: i5-3570k 3,8ghz. (STOCK)
Motherboard: Asrock z77 Extreme3
Videocard: Nvidia Geforce 570.
RAM: 8gb g.skill.
5 Case Fans.

Thanks!

I am bit confused why you have a video card in a server and also, it depends on your electrical rates per watt ect. more or less is a kind way this question is too vague to be answered.

Probably hosting a virtual server or a game server from his normal pc, i did a power supply calculator and i think your pc will never exeed 500 watt, so lets say it uses 0.5 KWH per hour, thats 12 KWH per day. multiply your price per kilowatthour by 12 and judge for yourself ;P
