Thin client, flat screen monitor power consumption.

Looking for figures on the power consumption of a thin client with a flat screen monitor compared to a desktop with CRT monitor. Understand there is a considerable difference.

If you look on the box, it will tell you how much power the monitor/computer will use. LCD's do use a lot less power than CRT's but the quality for gaming and things like that goes down considerably.
