it depends on whether the transistors are in a quiescent state or no.
if you're compiling a kernel constantly or running a server at 80%
utilization, i'd go with a number like 500W for the power and do the
math on the $/W-hr from CP&L. for a desktop, my guess is that the unit
will not normally be maxed out and something like 50W would be more
appropriate. the monitor maked a huge difference, too. CRTs use a lot
more power than LCDs.
