What do you think of this UPS? - Page 2

Thread Starter 
Anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes is fine for me. Just enough time to save/shutdown stuff safely.

I would say total peak load is somewhere around 350W if you haven't overclocked anything.

The calculator above suggests that I get a 800va 540 watt UPS, I don't think the wattage matters at all since the wattage is what powers the UPS not the other components. The voltage from the wall should just pass through the ups into the desired components.
PSUs aren't rated for their input power and neither are UPSes.
That wattage is exactly what is powering your PC and monitor when you have that blackout for what you bought UPS... or doesn't power if connected devices order more bacon than UPS can make.

Then you won't be using that computer until you replace PSU. (and in case of low quality PSU possibly also other components)
That's why servers use redundant/multiple power supplies which can be hot swapped.
