Generally a standard EZ bar weighs between 30-35lb. A standard Olympic barbell weighs 45lb although it is fairly common to find 55lb bars at many powerlifting gyms. You might also come come across what's known as a Texas Deadlift Bar in some of the Powerlifting/strength gyms in the States; it's designed to be stronger although it still weighs the same as a regular Olympic bar.
As Robert mentioned, the weight of the bar should be counted for your lifts.
Oh wow, did you really just revive an 8 year old topic? lol
