    Thanks CountMike!

    As you said earlier the Nvidia GTX 460 doesn't use much power right?

    I'm looking at this page, but I can't find much information on how much power it uses?

    Even in full use during benchmark it was hitting only 48+ Watts.

    GTX 460, TDP is 150 watts.
    The second digit vaguely indicates power consumption. e.g. a GT 420 is 50 watts TDP, GTX 480 is 250 watts TDP.

    Wow, it's great how you can see so much information!

    I'm using HWMonitor app to see my information, but your app seems to display much more information.
