I have a CyberPower UPS with a built in energy meter. I also have a Kill-A-Watt meter but using the UPS is easier.

My rig, an Asus P8Z68, i5-2500K, WD Caviar Black, GTX 460 1GB, with 8GB of RAM, draws about 70W at idle, and peaks at about 220W during heavy gaming or encoding. My monitors and speakers are extra.
