Ram - HyperX Fury 2x8GB DDR4
3 Approx. Fans in the cabinet
WD 120GB SSD
Seagate 1 TB HDD 7200 RPM

That's pretty small, especially as usually the monitor is also attached to it. 600VA is typically only good for ~330-360w but this may well work for awhile as your system will often be at idle.

Worst case is it simply shuts off when it attempts to transfer the load, making it worse than no UPS (your PSU may have enough hold-up time to ride out minor power glitches, but not if the UPS disconnects the load!). I've seen 600VA UPSes simply keep beeping whenever an excessive load is attached.

BTW you could use the old UPS to run something like only the monitor after you get a newer one--even if the batteries have degraded some, it doesn't use as much power, and this will keep this load off the other UPS for longer runtime.

Generally, consumer UPSes are only rated 4 to 7 minutes of runtime under full load--when the batteries are new. This goes downhill fast if you ever actually use them, so bigger is better.
