My System Specs

Default UPS info needed...not the courier..lol

I'm looking to get a UPS for my system but I'm not very knowledgable about them. I'm looking for info and recommendations. I need one that will allow me to run at least my system with a 1200w PSU and maybe also let me plug in my 24" monitor.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks

There was a short discussion here, along with a UPS calculator...

UPS - the good kind

The XS 1300VA mentioned in the linked thread above is a good one. It has AVR which conditions the electricity going into your PC, as well as battery backup. APC makes good stuff, I have an older model.

This one sells at Staples for $230 though...I didn't shop around but Canada Computers might have this, and I bought mine at Best Buy a couple of years ago on sale.

You sure you don't want to know more about the other UPS?
