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.
My System Specs
MSI Cyclone 460 GTX
