2 screens + gaming pc 1 plug safe?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Me and my brother are going to have both our gaming pc's in one room and we need to know if anybody could help us with something, were just wondering that if we got one of those kettle plugs that have 3 connectors on the one cable instead of one. would it be safe to have 2 screens + gaming pc (550watt psu) on that one 3 in 1 plug?

I know people who use 1500w guitar amps and record on their computers that are on the same outlet.. im guessing you should be fine.. at the worst youd have to reset the breaker..

Ive never had problems hooking up multiple high power devices to 1 outlet.


EXCEPT when my girl runs her Blow dryer....That thing eats so much power that it blows the breaker if my desktop,tv,xbox,etc,etc is running on the same breaker.

typical outlet is rated @ 1500watts/15amps....kitchen and garage outlets are usually rated @ 2000watts/20amps.......most 15amp breakers will trip @ about 1550~1600.....the cheap ones trip as low as 1400 sometimes.......before i installed 3 dedicated 20amp outlets in my computer room, i ran my sig rig with all the monitors, a tv, a ps3, another pc with a monitor, and a iMac all from a single 15 amp line with 2 outlets

that wont be all thats in one outlet, it will be (wall outlet --> 8 plug surge protector --> 2 screens + pc on one of the sockets of the surge protector) along with all the other stuff like ps3's 360's laptop/phone chargers...etc
its not weather the wall outlet will handle it that im worrying about. its weather a kettle plug 3-1 splitter (like this one http://www.kenable.co.uk/product_info.php?products_id=1839) will handle it or if they can only take monitors.
