I just started researching a quad core low power consumption PC last night. I've been building low power, ultra-quiet systems for years now. I'll be really curious what your idle power draw is from the wall.
Here's a measurement I'd like you to make: Measure the wall draw with the graphics card in, then pull the card and measure it. (I'm building a server next and won't have any kind of graphics card in it)
