I tested my PC with a Watt Meter plugged to the wall, and I got this results:

That's with an HD6970 on iddle, x2 HDD's, SSD, white cathodes...
I'm sure you can go below 200W with my rig if we took off the HD6970.
I notice that you are from Germany. What is the power outlet voltage there? Because in Australia we have 240v outlets and if they are only 110v then your Watt reading here will be almost double
Half that. Computer Wattage and Power consumption can only be measured AFTER the PSU for compairing in different countries.
This is because the computer side of the PSU is the same (3v,5v or 12v, depending on what your measuring. But the power outlet can be a different voltage in different countries.
If Germany is 110v then your reading of 210W is as follows:
therefore A=W/V, Agreed?
Then your Amp draw is A=210/110
But in Australia we use 240v so 210W here is:
I believe this explains what I mean. I may have done something wrong though
