Thats a bit difficult when not knowing the price of electricy where you live, the power consumption of your computer and how long time you keep it on. However, it quite easy to calculate yourselves:

PricePrMonth [$/month]= PowerConsumption [W] * OnHrsPrDay [hrs/day] * 30 [day/month] * 0.001 [kW/W] * PricePrkWhr [$/kWhr]

E.g. 300W, PC on 24 hrs pr. day and 0.2$/kWhr:

PricePrMonth = 300*24*30*0.001*0.2 = 43$

Was That directed towards me? Because my comment was in general meaning a Computer doesn't really use that much power...

True. But I leave it to jackfrost to put in the correct numbers. My price calculation above was just an example.
