Who knows?

2x 5970 (overclocked), i7 at ~4Ghz, 5 hardrives, sound card, network card, optical drives end up very approximately near 1800 or so.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

Except 15A * 120VAC = 1800W * .80 (efficiency) = 1440W

How do you even drive anything about 1500W? lol

Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.

:lol:

Anything over 15A in the states would start to trip breakers, unless that room has a healthy 20A breaker :)
