Hi Everyone,

My APC UPS just broke down. Served me 8 long years. So i am looking for a good solution. My config is

Intel E8400 @ Stock.
Thermalright True Black Rev C. 120.
Asus P5Q Pro.
2x2GB 800MHz GSkill CL5 RAM's.
1TB WD1001FALS + 500GB Seagate 7200.11 HDD.
Palit HD4850.
Corsair VX450W.

I would be overclocking the PC if that in a factor is considering the UPS. Would the APC Back-UPS BE 650Y-IN be good enough? Just need 15-20 mins of back up that's all.

Did it physically die and doesn't offer a replaceable battery?
The one you listed looks good and has a replaceable battery.
Makes me happy to see other members who realize the importance of good power protection:) 
I think it will be fine.

That pretty much rules out a battery replacement! an untimely death!
Well just replace it with the one the same of higher specs.
