Car Inverter do I need?

Car says 12V 120W. I'm charging a PC and a camcorder. I probably need less than an amp at 120 volts, but I'm not sure what size of inverter to get. Is a 400W inverter OK, or will it draw down on the battery somehow or otherwise overload the 120W max plug in? Or will it run cooler and just use the power it needs and stop at that?
