Thing to remember is you gotta add the monitor in this power usage requirement...you need to see what you are doing...
The best thing about the ups is they keep the voltage very stable so your system runs alot more reliably because it isolates you from the hydro line.
Myself I have 550 watt Cyberpower and it's come in handy 3 time during power outages due to thunderstorms...
With mine I can get about 5 to25 minutes of run time to finish what I'm doing and shut down....or if you are away the system automatically shut down.
Here is what I will buy when my current one dies....

Very good systems never had a problem with it yet!
Hope this helps...JQ

Plus, most come with some sort of connected equipment guaranty...
