More about choosing avr ups
  1. first off the 560watt PSU will draw above 600watt so it will better to go with 900watt UPS...
    but since PSU will not work at 100% Load all the time u can escape with 600watt ones...
    be caution though, if it on it's peak load and there a power cut off the UPS will not work as it intended...

    the number VA is just how long it will hold up, so buy the biggest u can afford... (at the decided wattage)


    edit : btw most UPS already had AVR inside it so not necessary to buy both
  2. Honestly I don't know much about UPS brand..... :D
    (they only sold local brand "ICA" around here which actually quite good)

    will wait for other opinion..
  3. oh ok LOL

    Sine wave always better than simulated ones, avoid square wave UPS (But they are very expensive....... :( )
  5. pure sine wave isnt available at our country ill stick with the second one ;) thanks :D
