    That does sound like quite a lot. How did you come to that figure and do you keep it on all day/night?


    Maybe think about getting an atom machine for serving/downloading/browsing and just use your main pc for processor intensive tasks.

    at least 3 of mine are never off, plus various printers and other peripherals, no wonder my bills are huge
