VIA Arena shows you just how easy it is to build a PC that consumes less than 60W. It's not a crippled system either. It doesn't have the power to max out the settings in some intense games, but it handles World of Warcraft perfectly.
"The VIA pc3500 mainboard has been specifically designed to build PCs that have low power requirements. Just how
simple is it to build a PC that consumes less than 60W? We tested various components in order to build a sub-60W PC
and then compared the power consumption during various tasks to a mid-range PC, with some surprising results."
