Turn the monitor off

I think you're getting funny answer purely because it's a ridiculous question without supplying the crucial information i.e your setup as that makes all the difference. It completely depends upon how much power your PC is drawing then once you have the figure you need to compare it again the suppliers cost. If you have all the figures it will be an easy answer but getting those is the harder part.

A 1000w psu will use 1 unit per hour 450w will use 0 .45units given 20p a unit a 1000w will cost £1.60 for 8 hours a 450w will cost 72p for 8 hours.

Oh that's a full power which you will never use so those are worse case scenarios.
