How does a casual white box server builder estimate power consumption?
I'm looking now at an S5000PSLSATAR with 4 or 8 * 4GB, two 5400s, three or five 7200 RPM SATA drives, and a CD/DVD burner. Will that challenge the 650W supply in an SC5299BRP or do I need more? I need that specific answer right now, but for future I'd like to know how to estimate for other configurations.
