It's work safe, don't worry. Naughty bits are hidden by a well placed video card. :=P

Not really, the character never had any naughty bits to begin with Tongue

Frankly, I don't like nVidia's new mascot. It looks too ... "cartoonic" to be representing a high end "slice-the-competition's-throat-and-buyers-wallet" graphics card. ATI's "liquid metal" mascots does better job at this.

You found it too, eh? Its an undeniable fact: Superman is a dick!! XD

Though. I'm also laughing at the pathetic anatomical errors on that 1960s comic.

Simply put...

No.

That and it probably costs a lot to run it too (450W PSU minimum... 600 - 700W PSU recommended... 700W!!!)

Whether or not you can afford to buy one of these massively unnecessary power supplies is one thing... The main issue at hand is the cost of rising oil prices, which in turn leads to increased electricity tariffs.

Now, bear in mind that a 1000 watt power supply unit does not use the full 1000 watts when its on. The PSU might be designed to supply 1000 watts, but only 1000 watts at peak load. When the system is idle on not performing system intensive tasks, the power needed might be lower. The overhead is present just in case devices need to kick in and require some extra juice to get it going. Let's assume, then, that you have a 1000 watt PSU but only with components using up to 500 watts (on idle) and 700 watts (on full load).

That's not an unrealistic figure, considering all the funky stuff enthusiasts put inside their computers nowadays. Let's assume that the target computer is going to be running 24/7. Let's set ourselves a 30 day monitoring programme. The PC is put to full load for about 4 hours a day, and left to idle for the rest of the remaining 20 hours. Again, bear in mind, this is all in the name of science. Theories were meant to be observed and explored, not hammered down and swept under the carpet.

A check with Singapore power reveals that the electricity tariff (last revised 1st October 2006) is 21.64 /kWh. Let's use that.

Peak Load = 15.15 x 4 hours
Idle Load = 10.82 x 20 hours

Total (in one day) = $0.60 + $2.16
Total (in one month) = ($0.60 + $2.16) x 30

SGD$82.80 for running that PC 24/7. Even without running it all day, every day, the cost of running that monster at peak load for 4 hours a day is about SGD$18 a month. If you think that's okay, factor in the cost for all the other things around the house.

Computer + Television + Cable box + DVD player + Home theatre system + Lights + Fan + Air-Conditioning + Refrigerator + Water Heater + Washing Machine + DSL/Cable Modem + Router + Computer Monitor + Monitor + Telephone/Fax + Radio + Iron + Vacuum Cleaner + Handphone Charger + Kettle + Toaster

Food for thought.
