I have built a high end gaming rig with 750 watt psu. Sometimes there are electric fluctuations at my home like dimming of lights. One day while playing my pc restarted unexpectedly after a fluctuation. So, are there any chances of components being damaged due to fluctuations. If so, then will i have to buy any UPS or consult an electrician? If UPS is the choice, then which will be best suitable?

you can get a UPC (uninterupted power supply) which is basically a car battery that will hold a charge and you plug the pc/monitor into...if your power fluctuates extra energy in the battery will even it out...
