Literally all I care about is it staying on like 60 seconds. That is enough for me in the case of a full power outage. But my main concern is just the lights dimming is enough to shut off the computer so I figured UPS would solve that. Like the power is partially going out? Idk
Hi,
Probably have too much stuff on the same circuit if lights are dimming a lot.
You need to figure out what all is connected on the wall outlet like light switches for other rooms/.....

Backup battery will output a steady current but if it's coming on all the time you do need to figure out why eventually
Might have to move computer to a better power plug source or disconnect what other items are plugged into the same circuit then all you have to deal with is mother nature

Sine wave not simulated all the cheap ones are simulated sine wave and also some expensive ones so price does not insure sine wave = ask seller.
I have one of these compared to what computers cost it's well worth it
