    Advice on uninteruptable power supply

    Ello folks
    im just after a bit of advice again lol. power cuts is somethin we dont usually have a problem with but in the last couple of months we've had a few. ive also had to flash a few bios's in this time too so have been lucky.
    ive looked around on the net for a battery backup but have no clue which type or which power capacity id need. all i want is a backup that would keep my rig running for say 15/20 min if a power cut was to happen. this way if i was flashin a bios or anythin i would be able to finish without the power failling half way through.
    any suggestions are much apreciated. i have'nt got loads of money to spare lol so would like it to be as cheap as it could be without compromising its reliability.
    thanks in advance folks

    I'm using one of these: http://www.amazon.com/CyberPower-CP1.../dp/B00429N19W (the 1500VA/900W one) and I'm really happy with it!

    Had several power outages and absolutely no problems - switched to battery and back. I observed once, while doing a 24 hour prime95 testing that there were 4 outages (short time) in total (it's recording the events) and got no errors at all!

    They have built in power meter and have a software to connect with your pc - you can check how much power your system is actually using. Oh, and turn off the alarm! - if you have an outage at the night, it will scare the sh** out of you...
