Inverter questions

I am in the market for a inverter, and wondering how big is just right. I want to be able to run every thing such as micro, tv and of course DW needs a blow dryer for her hair. I have a total of 200 watt solar panels. Besides inverter is there any other componets I will need.
thanks in advance

You probably want an inverter/charger.

My 2000 watt MSW has been a good size for the uses that you stated. I have 3 group 27 deep cycle batteries, and that is the MINIMUM that I would recommend with that size inverter. If I had the space, I would upgrade to 4 T-105 batteries.
