Default how many kw does my computer use

i have a 19inc monitor, not the flat screen and a p4 2.0
I just got a huge electric bill, so i was wondering how much it actually cost to run a computer.

Does anybody know how many kw my computer will eat up per hour. Im pretty sure its about the same for most computers.

I dunno about kilowatthours but you can calculate COST pretty easily. Compare your last months bill to this months bill. Then calculate how much power it used based on the difference between the two.
