UPS for a gaming PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I know there is a lot of options to choose a nice low output wattage ups for a normal pc usage, but what if i want an UPS for a gaming pc that could deliver me an output as more than 600W.

 

 

Please suggest me a better UPS for a gaming PC. I live in India so please suggest a budget ups that can withstand fluctuations while gaming with my 1070Ti and i7 8700K with 8 GB RAM

no

no need for UPS, get 8 more gb of ram, and a decent PSU (unless you have one already)

Do you know roughly your power draw?  More than 600, so 800?  1000?
And how long does it need to run for?  Few seconds, minutes, hours?

I know most of the APC UPS's above 1500VA will handle over 800Watts, but you are talking serious money for them.
As an example this will handle 865Watts

If you really are using over 800 Watts you are only likely to get a few minutes, probably less than 10 at that usage, but if your power cuts are mostly short it will do fine.

I use 1500VA cyberpower.  UPS system's don't have a huge amount of battery storage it can handle 800W but has probably 100W of available power or less available and SLA dies fast if you keep discharging it.  The way SLA works if you discharge it fast you will probably only get 50W out of it the ratings are for a 20 hour discharge rate!  I use a lithium 1500/3000W yeti for the farmer's market it has 1000W usable power by contrast (and I plug in a 100W solar panel so it barely goes down with a fridge and fan on it in 90F+ weather).

Thank you. I'm not looking for playing in battery power. Even if the ups backs me up for 5 mins, that's more than enough for me. Right not the problem is it completely turns off if there is power outage.
