460 power question

i saw a lot of different benches showing power consumption of 460s

they ranged from 420 to 500 from stock to overclocked

now is this just the cards or the entire system??

  1. Whole system.
    The cards are rated at 150-160.
    If overclocked and volt adjusted maybe 200 for just the card.
  2. yea i was reading an article earlier said about 20 watts idle and about 140 150 full load
  3. k thanks

    figured id ask because on other forums ppl suggested 750 watt for sli setups and wen i saw 6-8 benches showing 500 w MAX for 2 overclocked 460s i was like no way all you would need is 650 dont know y ppl are suggesting 750-850 unless its just because its less stress on the psu
