    Power Usage Guide from TomHardware

    You guys read the 'Energy Crisis' guide over at TomHardware? Anyways, here the link: Power Usage Amd Vs. Intel

    Later in the article, it shows the actual power usage of their test machines. Not sure of its accuracy, but sure looks like a beefed up Opus 150 would be able to handle most needs, especially with AMD.
