How much would my electricity bill go up for 290x?
If I run a computer with fx 8350 oc'd to 4.6ghz and a msi r9 290x a few hours a day for gaming and video watching, how much would it cost in terms of electricity bill?

Well I have an older Phenom II 965 oced to 4.073 with a 7970 with 6 extra fans, case lights, sound card 2 HDDs 1 SSD, 5.1 surround. Due to the software for my UPS i can enter teh exact price per Kilowatt hour and it does the math for me depending on use. My system is not as energy efficient as your is.
hunter315 said:The 290x needs about 300W at full load, so your system would probably pull down about 600W at full load. Lets average everything out to 4 hours a day at full load, thats about 72 kWh. A normal estimating price for NA is about 15 cents/kWh, so it would cost you about $10.80/month.
I would love to pay 15 cent per lol. I pay 18. I'm getting boned
