Uninterruptable Power supplies

Hello, I'm considering a UPS Power supply and want an adequate amount to back up my 750 watt corsair supply. Do I need the equal wattage in the ups? If not then what needs to be considered when determining a ups for my needs. I don't really care much about battery life in the event of a power failure as much as I do WANT TO PROTECT MY PC FOR A GRACEFUL SHUT DOWN.

I'm asking because these UPS supplies are pretty expensive I want enough to protect and dont wanna waste money.

Thanks in advance.

  1. You only need to match the UPS to your actual power draw - not the size of your PSU.
    Will you need to plug your monitor into the UPS? If so list the make/model.
  2. I have a samsung syncmaster 906 bw.
    thanks for your help
  3. I added about 45watts for the monitor and estimated your CPU pulling something close to a an average gaming load of ~300-350watts.

    For that load you should get along fine with a UPS similar to the APC BE750G 750 VA 450 Watts
