Good ups that can run a 1000w platinum psu?

I have  a lot of power outages where i live (around 1 a day) and I am building a top end gaming rig that I do not feel like frying, the pc is going to pull around 870watts any recommendations?

I dont have a model recommendation. But Id look at APC UPS's they are solid. 

Was there dairy in that? ***30 min later**** Yep..... You might want to let it air out for a bit.....😂😂😂😂😂😂

How do you know that it's gong to draw 870W? It took Linus dual 3090's and a 10900K (IIRC) under a synthetic benchmark to pull a continuous ~1000W I don't think you need that much PSU unless you have a similar setup. With that in mind APC has the Back UPS Pro series it's a decent consumer unit series which have different maximum output ratings based on model. The highest I believe is the 1500 and it's officially rated for 865W output

You have to factor in a monitor as well. Plus any thing else you might have on battery outlets. So if your machine draws 870watts, your going to want to have more than that. Also consider that full load that thing only lasts 4 min. Having extra wattage built in means longer run time. I can get about 15 min out of mine. But, thats up to you. The one you linked should be solid.

I have the 1300 on my desktop. It's only rated for 680W but I've gone over 750W without issue. You can probably get away with a little more than what the spec sheet says.

I am not going to connect the monitor to it might be a bad idea but paying double the price is not worth it i just need like 20 sec to turn it off

It doesn't actually specify the wave form it uses but at the price point it's more than likely square-wave. This is usually fine for most reputable PSU's with the downside of a lot of audible buzzing when running on UPS. Some units really don't like it though and your system may shutdown spontaneously. I don't expect that to happen though with a well built PSU.

If you don’t plug the monitor into the ups, I assume you’re just gonna program it to shut down when the battery gets low?

As a power outage won’t fry the setup, if that were the case a simple surge protector could suffice.

You'll need an UPS with high VA rating, maybe in the 2000-5000VA , and most likely with at least 2 or 4 lead-acid batteries (running internally on 24 or 48v) inside.

 

Even so at 800-1000w of power consumption, you'll be looking at 5-10 minutes of running on batteries, and then batteries will take maybe 20 hours to recharge. But such expensive UPS will have monitoring software that can be notified when there's power loss, and the monitoring software would minimize/suspend game  to reduce power consumption the moment there's power loss , or you can configure Windows to throttle the cpu to 10% when running on battery / ups (from power management) to reduce power consumption 

 

basically with any UPS, the VA rating should be at least around 2-2.5x the maximum power consumption of the devices you plan to have connected to the UPS.

Don't use online wattage calculators.  And connect a monitor.  It's not a huge pull, LED monitors are lightweight.

Why? seems expensive for no reason do you know how much a ups like that is going to cost here? probably half my pc
