My Kill-A-Watt meter arrived today and this is what I got on my i7-920 @ 4.2Ghz with 3x GTX470's:

From the PS plug / Whole System wattage:

280w Idle

775w with 3 gpu's folding

840w peak while running Heaven Benchmark

Now that's with 10 fans, lights, and pump for water cooling. Without the extra stuff it would be ~ 40w less. So my advice on power supply's is a good 850w (Corsair. etc.) for 2 GTX580's or less or 950w minimum for 3 cards in tri-sli. If you have extra gear using power in your rig like I do, just figure out how much more wattage you need.
