Not necessarily, where your internet sources from has generators too. Usually outside your locale as well so you'd need a catastrophic grid failure. I'm just saying what payed servers provide and how you could match it IF you so desired. Doubtful but just saying why it's best to pay for a host.

The ADSL hardware in your local exchange will not be UPS or generator backed. Power goes out, ADSL drops. Your phone line will still keep working for many hours as they are battery backed, but your internet connection won't. I would be very surprised if your cable company would pay to keep its internet hardware running during a power failure either - the costs would be too high.

If your local connection goes offline, it doesn't matter if your source has a generator or not, as you can't connect to it.

GPU? No need, seriously.
PSU? Hopefully redundant, reliable. Team with a UPS and backup generator for reliabilities sake if you care too.
NIC... NIC!? Yah, you will need more than the integrated one, look for 10mbit+ capable and around 4 ports or 2x2port NICs etc.
GET FAST INTERNET THAT ALLOWS HOSTING!

GLWS <-- Good Luck With Server.

Pay for a server. OK?
10Mbit NIC? 4 Ports? Generator? Explain yourself man!

In my area our phone and internet lines are underground and backed up by generators.. But power is on poles. We go from hours to weeks without power but never get phone/internet interruption. Mostly during heavy storms.

As i rather rent and take a few bucks out my pocket and let it run 24/7 and be done with it.
Sorry, but ultimate has piss poor support run by monkeys, and game servers.com has the worst reg in history.

I have been through many providers, the best one for dedicated servers is NFO, most places give you very low amounts of RAM which will hold your server back. NFO has a lot of value.

If you decide to host yourself, I recommend some good desktop parts, Q6600 or something, at least. I had to upgrade to the beast below to get more slots available on my pubs. Just make sure you have a good upload speed.
