I've never known anyone use a UPS and none of the people I know have had issues with mains power.
I would recommend a SeaSonic over the Corsair CX series.
This is built by SeaSonic: http://www.amazon.com/XFX-ATX-550-Power-Supply/dp/B004R...

Active PFC is for output not input.
I recommend SeaSonic built PSUs because they are the industry leader in high-quality, long lasting and safe PSUs. It should last much longer than a Corsair which is made by CWT.
