High end system, what APC do you suggest?

This question was originally posted by Davide on APC forums on 9/29/2010


Hi,
I need an UPS for this system.

Monitor LCD 24" (110W max)
Intel I7 970
GTX480
2x high rpm sata

what is the correct ups for my system?

I think that a 800VA is not enough. What do you suggest?

Hi sblantipodi,

I have a new PC/monitor set-up similar to yours, and am using a new Back-UPS ES 750(VA)/450 Watts. The downloaded and active Power Chute (v2.2) Personal Edition GUI monitor says my PC Intel i7 980 with 2 running Hard Drives (RAID1), and 25.5 LCD monitor are drawing approx. 108/112 watts of a potential draw of 450 via the APC UPS, with 15/17 minutes expected runtime available on UPS only if utility power fails. And, the Power Chute monitor says I can still connect more equipment to my battery backup (UPS).

You should have lots of "wiggle room" with an 800VA UPS.
