38880000J = 10.8 kWh
Cost per day to run rig 24h = 0.23*10.8 = 2.484
Cost to run per month = 2.484*31 = €77.004
Your math is indeed correct. It is simply because energy costs are much higher for you in the Netherlands than it is for most of us in NA is why you pay more. We pay around a third of what you pay so my bill would probably be around $26 monthly if I were to run your rig 24/7.
Thanks for the confirmation.
Well, that's not going to happen. I can't afford to pay an extra € 77 every month for an(other) addiction
I'm just a student. I live in a dorm were I have to pay for my own electricity. The problem is not the price per kWh, which is just € 0.08, but those damn taxes make it a total of € 0.23. Seriously, this government...
I should've done my homework better before buying those two GTX 460s for folding, aarggh.
However, I will continue to fold on my i7. Without those two GTX460s, the power consumption has been reduced to ~200 Watts, which will cost me around € 34. That's still quite some extra cash every month, but it's way better than 77 euros a month extra.Edited by Freekers - 2/2/11 at 3:05am
