DJPhil:
Neat stuff!
I like how you can mouse over any of the cards and the display changes to percent. I'll have to remember that trick.
I wonder if there's an easy way to test on board video too. I'd guess that onboard video would use less power just by the absence of the fan and extra circuitry, but I imagine it's hard to say.
Thanks for the link, I was just thinking about picking up a newer graphics card. :)

There's an article about these on tomshardware. It explains some of the basic differences, and near the end of the first page they have some power information that suggests that your 4650 uses less power overall in most of it's incarnations. It's probably not conclusive, but it might be a start. :)
