UPS question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP


I am needing to buy a UPS as the power has been going out frequently, and for a couple minutes each time is goes out.

I have a monitor and a 550W gaming computer. I am wondering what UPS to get and how much watts the UPS has.


(Not sure what to this thread under, so I put it here for now; feel free to move it)
