Standard Wall socket with high wattage pc and lcd monitor
This was originally posted on APC forums on 1/3/2011
I am running my 1200watt pc(with the following specs listed below) and my 117watt Dell 3007WFP Flatpanel monitor from a surge protector that is rated 1875watts. I have not really had any problems but I would like to setup the monitor so if there is a power goes out then I do not have to reset the brightness on the monitor.
What would be the best solution if I just wanted 10 minutes?
Intel Quad Core 2 Extreme QX9770 3.2Ghz | Asus P5E3 Premium Wifi-AP X48 | 4 GB DDR3 Dual Channel Corsair 1600Mhz | two VisionTek Radeon 4870 x2 | Soundblaster X-Fi XtremeMusic | Coolermaster CM Stacker case w/glass side panel | 300GB Western Digital VelociRaptor 10000rpm SATA | 300GB Seagate IDE | 16x Pioneer DVD-ROM | Thermaltake Toughpower 1200 watt power supply | Windows 7 64-bit | Saitek keyboard & G5 mouse
I thought of just connecting the PC to the surge protector I already have and running that to one wall socket then connecting everything else(500watt pc speaker system, 25watt printer, 22watt router, 3.51watt phone, and 9 watt cable modem) including the 117watt 3007WFP to a UPS that would total about 680watts to a separate wall socket.
