Maximum power for monitor?

On a G4 DA 533 what is the most power you can draw to run your monitor off of the second power out port?(the one next to the main power cord going into the Powermac)

Your concern?

Female connectors to supply mains power to displays are usually wired in parallel with the male mains input to the computer. If you are concerned that the computer is supplying the mains power, and may therefore have an allowable maximum, you need worry no further. The mains power to the display effectively comes from the mains (wall socket, power board, or whatever). It simply passes through the Mac on its way to the display.
