True. Oh well, I won't worry about it.I'm absolutely not sure about power consumption when using the GPU. The GT 8800 is rated at a maximum power draw of 105 watts. The thing is that I have no idea whether the GPU client uses as much power as a 3D simulation. Therefore, the power consumption may be minor, so the power draw may not be far from idle.
Also, if you have power saving software running, the difference between idle and f@h would be much bigger than when you're not running such software.
