Ask ! Get the answer pauls3743 a b à CPUs March 2, 2012 6:39:40 PM again, it really does depend on the monitor and cpu (base unit?). It could be anything from under 100W for a basic system to over 1kW for a really high end nulti-monitor gaming system. A few of the power supply manufacturers have psu calculators which will give a better idea of the base unit power than we can give. jaguarskx a c 318 à CPUs a c 177 C Monitor March 2, 2012 11:24:03 PM A typical 24" LCD monitor with traditional florescent backlight is probably about 50w. A typical 24" LCD monitor with LED florescent backlight is probably about 25w. Current CPUs can range generally range between 40w (low power & reduced speed) to around 180w (Phenom II X6 1100T) at 100% load. Don't forget that video card also use power from as low as around 15w for a non gaming card to 400w for a Radeon HD 6990 under 100% load Can't find your answer ? Ask !
