    Look at the specs on the back of the monitor.

    They are usually around 0.6 or 0.7 A at 120v. I guess that is around 70 or 80 watts.

    I think monitors require a higher surge wattage, check that with someone though.

    Looking at the back of my old 17" CRT, its power requirements are 100~240v @2.5A. Ergo your looking at 300watts MIN, and more like 600w just for the monitor alone.

    It would probably be cheaper to just get a cheapo LCD and do it that way
