I'm wanting to get a UPS to provide clean power and backup power to my new gaming PC that I will be building soon. I have looked online at power supply calculators and seen that my new gaming PC will use about 600 - 700 watts at full load, I also want to factor in my five monitors and speakers which have a combined power usage of 176 watts. I'm not sure how to calculate how long each UPS will last which is important as I want it to provide backup power for at least 15 Minutes. If anyone could provide some suggestions to what UPS I should buy I would be grateful.

Thanks
 
Cheap - My APC 1100VA will last about 120 seconds @ 500Watts

You are drawing way too much power to do something cheap and last more than 1 minute.
