CNet has a guide comparing the power consumption of several different display technologies: CRT, LCD, and Plasma.  While the guide measures the power consumption of TV sets, the same rules apply to monitors, and you might be surprised by the results:

"If you diligently click off the lights when you leave a room, obsess over the fuel-economy stickers on new cars, and cringe when the electricity bill arrives, you may be interested to know that your shiny, new flat-screen television may be a power hog. With the price of electricity going nowhere but up, catching the big game on Sunday, watching the latest DVD, and playing Halo with your buddies can make your electricity meter spin."
