Default Analyzing Power Use: 80 Plus Bronze vs. Platinum

Iíve been toying around with updating my computer lately, and one of the topics I wanted to look at was the choice of power supply. For the most part, weíve long since moved beyond the days where power supplies that cost under $60 are garbage. There are plenty of decent power supplies available, particularly if you donít mind taking a step down from the latest and greatest in terms of efficiency. Anyway, I was helping a friend put together a new PC the other day and it got me curious.

First, letís start with the system build he put together, with some input from me. Note that many of the parts were selected based on price and availability on Amazon.com, as thatís where he wanted to purchase the parts (with his Amazon Prime account). In some cases, prices have changed since the purchase a week ago, so shop around as needed. Also note that he used a GTX 780, but Iíve also run some power use tests with just the iGPU as well as with a low-end Radeon HD 7750.
