You need to calculate your system's maximum draw and go from there, add some for whatever else is being plugged into it.

 

Then take that wattage and buy a unit that exceeds that number in VA. Watts to VA isn't a perfect 1:1 conversion, but it's close enough and will end up being a little more than you need (which will conveniently cover the extra power consumption that AC to DC conversion causes).

You'll also need a UPS that has transfer time which is lesser than your PSUs hold up time under load. You can get the holdup time for your PSU from reviews like on tomshardware.
