    I've a PC :-
    Celeron 1.7 MHZ, 40 GB HDD,256 MB DDR-SDRAM, Intel 854 GL based M/B(ATX), 15" CRT Monitor, 52X CD-ROM Drive & a 600 VA UPS as a peripheral. I've a 250 W SMPS.

    How much power do you think it consumes?

    If you are calculating Possible Power usage to see if you Power Supply can handle the load then have a look at This Site
    The figures are for Maximum Utilization but I would still add a minimum of 10% for safety.
    Note: Most cases the Monitor will not figure into the equation but if you wish to know its consumption there should be a label on it somewhere defining such.

    Hope that helps.
