Hello everyone- I'm a long time lurker, first time poster.
I currently have a headless ubuntu server running a dual core unlocked Sempron 140 with 8 gigs of ram which I use for serving media and to remotely encode video using a scripted handbrake hot folder. The unlocked Sempron takes about 50 minutes to encode a single movie and I'd like to speed it up a little. Right now my server runs at about 65w idle and I leave it on all day. If I were to purchase the quad core Phenom 910e would the added 25w add much to my monthly power bill?
My wife watches the bills like a hawk, so I gotta ask about stuff like this.
