I'm thinking about splurging on a decent battery back-up so my expensive computer doesn't get fried during a blackout. Given the powerful nature of my setup, I thought a 750VA battery back-up should cut it. I'm only buying APC, it's a proven brand.

Core 2 Duo 2.4 Conroe Processor
eVGA nForce 680i SLi Motherboard
2 GeForce 7600 GT video cards (for now)
250 GB SATA Western Digital HD (7200 RPM, I think)
160 GB Seagate HD (def 7200 RPM)
Samsung 931BF (19") LCD Monitor
Simple Floppy Drive
Force Feedback Joystick (MS Sidewinder 2)
Powered 4.1 Altec Speakers
D-Link Wireless Router
Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
As you can see, my setup sucks up a lot of power. I don't think I'll plug the printer into the back-up, though, I'm not that concerned about it.
A side note, I live in an apartment in an OLD house...fuses burn out if I use too much power in the apartment.
