  1. Best answer
    is your computer running 24/7 at max 6 cores full speed. if not, you aren't using the 125w. those only apply under MAX load.
  2. You will save some money in energy costs, but keep in mind you are using 125 watts on your processor rarely. If you want to spend the money to upgrade your system by all means do, but by the time you've saved in potential energy costs it will be time to upgrade again.

    no your can't use 1 graphics card for youtube and 1 for gaming. your GTX card downclocks itself to a lowe speed for youtube, etc, as does your cpu.

    $15.66 vs $54.40, assuming full load, so less than $40 difference a year.

    Cost to buy a new intel CPU and motherboard, at least $$450-$500. $40 a year difference in power savings after putting out $500 on new hardware means 12.5 years before you break even in saving anything on power.

    In other words, spending $500 to save $40 a year isn't worth it as it will take 12.5 years to pay off that $500.
  6. If you are satisfied with your computer, do not buy another one to try to save money in energy costs.
