Default How much will it cost to run my PC?...

Well when I took off to college my parents electric bill dropped a couple $100 bucks. Now that I have an even better system listed below in my signature it'll consume even more.

Out of all seriousness what do you guys think It'll be costing the bill if I run my PC an average 7 hours a day. I have a couple extra 120 fans and I do have my 3 monitors. OC'ed to 3.6GHz etc... Do any of you guys have any ideas what this might run up to? I have a feeling I might be paying part of the electric bill this month ha.

Oh and on another note I usually have my LG 37" LCD HDTV running for a chunk of that time too lol.. But don't add that in the cost.

EDIT: I'm only running 4 gigs of ram too.

What is their price/watt? How much drop is there in the kWh measurement?

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
