Heh heh, nothing like a system dying to motivate you.

Well, how long do you want the system to stay up?  Are you willing to shell out the extra bucks for one that has a serial connection cable for monitoring and alerts?

I don't on mine, I have the 300 watt rated ones, they run form 30-50 if you get them on sale.  Mine are APC,  and none have the talk back cable.  So far, as long as I keep my monitor off all my systems have survived the power outages just fine when I wasn't there to manually shut them down.

Staples JUST had a deal (Elk Grove Satples) where you buy an APC 300 for $35.00 with a $25.00 rebate.  Deal may be over.

Also, www.techbargains.com sometimes has deal sites on UPS's
