i keep reading on these forums of cool n quiet and low power consumption htpc`s. what would you class a low power ? i tried a few setups as i wanted a htpc but also to be left on 24/7 to download off the net ,with my maplin digital watt reader most systems i ran came out at about 100 watts just for the pc with no monitor added so i set up a 2500 barton for my htpc which is only on about 2 hours a day and decided to build a server pc for the garage from an old celeron 433 and 256 mem which now runs between 37 to 50 watts depending on hd access. what do you count as low power for a pc and what watts does your system use. hope this makes a good thread as it could save members a few pounds on electricity. i have already halved my consumption moving to this setup.
