We've had 2 power outages in my area over the past couple of weeks. both were short-lived, but they've made me consider buying a UPS for my home PC. I'm not worried about losing any work, I'm concerned about the possibility of it being damaging to my PC. Unfortunately I know very little about them.
In fact, I don't even know if an outage is harmful to the components. I'm sure it can't be beneficial. Right now I have my system connected to a good surge protector, but that's it. And I'd hate to see my new computer become damaged by an oversight in my power protection setup. If it is necessary, How can I choose the one thats best for me? Thoughts or advice would be appreciated.
I've seen a couple that seem good from APC and Cyberpower. The ones I've been looking at are around $140-190. I didn't realize they were so costly!
