    Hi, just wondering what sort of power bill iam going to get now that ive swapped to a Mac Pro 1,1 (as in my sig)

    the reason i ask, is cos the Mac Pro is nearly silent and my damm desktop PC sounds like a damm wind tunnel.

    so id like to know what sort of wattage/amps the mac pro 1,1 sucks per hour? am i likely going to get a shock when my power bill rolls in?

    My desktop is a E8400 wolfie, OC'ed to 3.5ghz with 4gig ram and the same vid card. Both boxen run 2 WD drives, a 1 TB and a 500 giger.

    Mac Pro has dual CPUs so it'll consume little more. Replace your PCs fans with some better ones, costs less than 100$ and gets you a quiet box
