That's pretty darn good. I use the 900w/1500VA model and it serves me well.

Depends on how much power you're drawing. My 900w will keep my system running for 7 mins when folding lol. A good bit longer when idle. So this would be a bit less than mine. Plenty of time to safely shut down if the power goes out.

im pulling more power on gpu, but normally idling
so it would probably keep my sigrig on (3.8ghz) for 10 minutes?
if so i might "buy" one lol

Here's a good question: Would you rather have ten minutes or none at all?

Really you only need like 5 minutes, or less, It will automatically shut down ur pc for you at a specified time, the backup is only their to keep your system running long enough to shut down properly and not just shut off from a power outage. 30 minutes would cost a lot more..

My father has his own construction business so I can just borrow some of his gears for power. No need to buy these power backup.
