I guess in the long run I would only like one plug being used by my PC

✔ Best Answer
Go buy a surge protector. Plug everything into that and then into the socket. That would be the proper and safe way to do it. DO NOT cut and splice any cords together.

Back in the day you could actually power a monitor off the PSU. Many AT PSUs had a 120v pass-through on them. I don't believe I've seen any ATX supplies with this feature.
