    Question Suggest a good UPS

    I'm thinking of buying APC BX1100C-IN for my PC. Is this UPS good enough for my PC? Which one do you suggest? I have no idea whether 1.1kVA is sufficient enough for the system on battery, or for how much time will this be able to provide power to system. I have Seasonic s12ii 520 PSU.
