I am looking into upgrading or purchasing new parts for my PC. I seem to leave it turned on VERY frequently (Not to mention game for extended hours) and would like to find any way to help with energy use. Any Ideas?

 

Thanks!

That's a tough question.  Try using sleep mode with it if you want to save energy.  That will be your best bet with any equipment that's not being used as a server.

Nice! Thanks for the idea with the kill-a-watt meter. I hadn't considered using that as a method of tracking.

 

I have my comp set to the sleep mode as of now. I may need to reduce the time before sleeping. My Fiancé is giving me glaring looks...

Tried , Wake on lan where you send magic packet to modem then boom she wakes up ( requires home router that supports static ARP to work properly) , or possibly speed stepping in the bios to allow voltage tweak down when its idle , windows has tonnes of power managment options to allow the pc turn off various items after defined periods of times.
