A rough number, though based on numbers I read a couple years back:
computer only...about $40 a year
with monitor on, add $60 a year

It's not really an opinion is it.. you need to find out how much power your computer consumes in kWh (kilowatt-hours), as this is how your power company usually charges you for electricity.
This is an interesting thread on another forum. Keep in mind that this guy uses Folding@Home (maxes out his CPU the whole time), and that CRT monitors have much higher levels of power consumption than LCD monitors.
If you have a laptop, again, power consumption could be significantly reduced.
I think it varies too much to say really. Here is some more info from a simple Google search:
Hope that helps you out.
