Help me buy a UPS

IDprofile

Hey I've decided after losing many computer components to the beautiful weather of sunny Florida that I should finally invest in a good UPS.

I found this on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00ANU8M5W/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

But since I'm new to this and don't really know what I'm doing I figure I should ask all ya'll for some advice before I go and drop $700.

I'm going to be running two top end gaming systems on it and then whatever else I can reasonably fit on it e.g. TV, modem, monitors, steering wheel.

Thank you.

What are your system components your running that UPS is good but sounds like it will be way more than what you need.

I have this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16842102133. Its only rated for 810 watts however. Keep in mind, your not trying to run your PC long term on these on battery. Not all the outlets will be battery also. Only half of mine connect to the battery while the other half only do surge protection. The funny thing is my PC currently is running on battery power. Even though its November in Michigan we had a thunderstorm blow thru and knock out the power. You might be better off getting a UPS for each machine. 

 

The way I have mine setup, it will put my PC in hibernate after like 3 min on battery. This is to preserve the battery as my router and modem are also on the battery, this way I have internet longer. I also only have my router, modem, PC and one of two monitors plugged in to the battery part. Because really thats all I need, as I can still use my machine with only one monitor. 

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

Even though my UPS is slightly bigger than what I need. It didn't last long. Maybe 10-15 min. So keep in mind that you are not running stuff long term on battery. Sadly my battery ran out. Also just because your modem is connected, does not mean you have internet. As your ISP need battery backups on their Network.
