Hello guys I wanted to know how much VA / WATT do I need for my ups... what I need to connect is 2 Screens: x1 27" monitor and x1 24" Monitor/TV

2 Desktops: x1 5-6 years old PC and
x1 Brand New Gaming PC here are the specs:

Well I also used a site named OuterVision Power Supply Calculator to see the VA needed for my pc build and I got the following message "Recommended UPS rating: 700 VA / Load Wattage: 308 W / Recommended PSU Wattage: 358 W.

The UPS I was thinking to buy but I don't know if it's enough... is APC BACK-UPS 1400VA, 230V, AVR, Schuko Sockets (Look at the link below)
When I saw 1400 VA I thought it was 1400 watt at first... but when I tried to purchase it I saw on details...1400 VA / 700 Watt and I got confused...so is this ups fine for me ? for x2 screens and x2 Desktops? How much VA do I need for all these? Thanks!!!

I think you are good.
I use a APC back UPS pro 1500.
It says 865watts on battery backup potential.
I use perhaps half that.

If you need a long run time on battery, I think you can buy a extra battery pack.
If you only need power for temporary glitches or to shut down gracefully, you really do not need much.
