Default UPS

I want a ups for my specs:
Intel core i7 2700k @ stock speeds
Asus p8z68vpro/gen
gskill 16gb ram @2133mhz
Amd radeon hd 7970
benq 2420tx
corsair ax850 psu
250gb hdd
It should give at least 10min backup at full load since my father do sound editing and he takes time to shut it off?

APC BACK-UPS RS 1500VA 865W 10 Outlet 420J RJ-45 Protection - AMERICAN POWER CONVERSION - BR1500G
That should be enough to handle his computer and monitor for a few minutes to shut down.

10 mins might be tough @ full load, might as well go big or you will own an expensive paperweight:

Both of those are good UPS units.
MIght get a bit of a noise thing though if they go on backup batteries because the Sine wave is a stepped approximation and not pure or true.
Active PFC PSU's sometimes don't like that (and its been contended both ways).

But yes, those units should do the job You're probably not on the Cusp of your load anyways. I bet you pull Max 550W from the wall. SO the units listed will give you about 20. Roughly. Maybe more if my math is wrong.

Ya my math sucks, I have the Cyberpower 850 and all it can do is shut off my SR2, barely.

Yeah he should be fine though because I bet he isn't pulling half load even on one of these.

APC has a product selector that might help :
UPS Selector Sizing Applications=

I just picked up APC's BR1300G at Costco yesterday for $144.99. Might be all you need. The On-line store has the bigger models.
