My system (front/backend):

Sempron 3000+
GeForce FX 5200
2x PVR250s
300gb Seagate SATA
Seasonic Super Tornado 300w PSU

Idle: ~60W
Max: ~110W

Each PVR uses about 10w. GeForce uses about 10w.

I should have bought a mobo w/integrated Nvidia graphics. Do the newer
PVR150s use less power? What about the PVR500s?
