I want to build new computer. Can you help me with UPS advice? Maybe some examples.
Athlon II X4 620
Antec Earthwatts EA-430D Green
1 hard drive
19'' LCD monitor
I've been using an APC UPS for about four years (on the bottom rig in my signature). I had to replace the battery last summer. I was surprised that it cost only about $35, and included a mailing label to properly recycle the old battery in the new battery's box.
Yes, it is. You'll need to spend a litte more, but you need to get a UPS that outputs a true sine wave, not a stepped approximation like most lower-end UPS units.
I just ordered this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... from their Smart series; it should arrive tomorrow. My SG-650 cuts off immediately when connected to one of their BE-series units, but it should work with this one.
