Borderline? If it was going full tilt and the monitor's backlight was maxed out...

By the TDP it should draw 230W. But you can take those numbers with a grain of salt, particularly the CPU. Then there is the efficiency of the power delivery, the PSU will be drawing, lets say worst case 80% efficiency which would put it closer to 285W. What is the wattage of the monitor?

Does your current UPS list the current or wattage flowing through it?

Always better to go a little bigger on UPS.

I see, How about the APC BACK UPS BV800I-MS 800VA 450W?
