How do you know how many watts your PC uses

Hello,
How do I work out how many watts all of the PCs in the office are using to determine the size of the UPS that I will need to cover them all?

  1. You can use a Kill A Watt to measure power consumption for each PC. I guess I would measure a few PCs take an average and tack on another 25% - 33% for safety measure and because those PC are going to be idling.
