I don't get why people have this weird concept that as hardware becomes more powerful it requires more power. As each generation of hardware hits (580 step up to 680) the technology in power consumption is nearly proportional to the advancement in its capabilities. A new CPU (2500k) at 4.5GHz+ requires just about equally as much power as an old CPU like an AMD 64 3200+. If anything, it's more PECULIAR if the power consumption increases (judging by recent improvements over the past 5+ years). The 680's TDP is nearly 25% lower than the 580's. I wouldn't be surprised if it is nearly the same improvement at max load.

Agreed, I am impressed and how good these GTX680 are when it comes to power draw, I can now do Folding@Home on my GTX680 and it won't kill our electricity's monthly bill. biggrin.gif

You know, I came from a Q6600 + 4870X2 to a much higher clocked 2500k + 2 570s and I noticed that my power bill has been dramatically cheaper. When folding, I used to constantly be in the $120/month range. Lately, my bill has been $62-$82! I haven't been folding as much, but the newer hardware is definitely making a difference. For those wondering: I live in a 2 bedroom, 1,000 sq ft apartment. My A/C is off for 12 hours every weekday on average, and I usually have it at 73F when it is on. I own a few devices that are power friendly such as an LED TV, eco dishwasher, etc.

I have barely TOUCHED Steam since the release of BF3. You can thank Origin for that, though I have also been pretty busy since January because of school. I've only been on a few times to play Dead Island and Left 4 Dead 2 with some friends. I do have Xfire you know. I'm even on at work smile.gif
