    power supply and pc monitor

    i've got a arcade with a pandora connected to 16A power supply and toei 19 crt
    i though id get rid of the toei monitor it was just a pain to figure whats going with it so i want to put in a 19 inch lenovo lcd pc monitor in

    i wanted to use a powerstrip with a IEC C-14 switch for powering the machine but thats 10A and the power supply is 16A im not sure thats going to work now
    so im leaving the old power toggle switch alone.

    Can i split power for lcd monitor and the power supply?
    and can i rip out the transformer and noise filter now?

    Yes and yes. And you can use the C-14 switch also.

    16A is your PSU's DC output, not input.
    Australian standard mains plugs are all 10A. So unless you're using your C14 to power a 15A clothes dryer or a 20A stove, you'll be fine.
