That Asus board has a power-meter built in, install the AI suite II software, then look under EPU.
It only lists CPU draw, but its free.

For total system draw, I use the software from my APC UPS that measures draw.

The other good one to use is something called a "Kill-a-watt" power meter. Its an external device that plugs into the wall, then you plug the PSU power cable into it. They're fairly cheap too.

Nice build too, by the way!

A lot of thanks for the quick reply. Will look that software u mentioned :D
By the way, if u dont have a liquid cooler for ur cpu, u should look the H80. So far is awesome, keeps my cpu between 31 & 33C during normal use, and I live in the Caribbean which is HOT XD

You're welcome, but I have a custom loop with a 240 radiator and swiftech apogee hd, blows everything else out of the water unless you have something more exotic.
