Power Consumption of the system will be measured in both idle states and loaded states and will take into account the peak wattage of the system with each video card installed. I will use MSI Kombuster to load the GPU for a 15 minute test and use the peak load of the system as my result for the maximum load. The idle results will be measured after 15 minutes of inactivity on the system.

There's not a whole lot of spectacular things to see in these graphs, though there is an important factor here — even with the slight increase in power that this card offers over the GTS450, it only uses about 3-5% more power at full load. That seems like the high efficiency components are showing off!
