    Looking for power protection for the new system. A UPS? Need something with at least 6 outlets. I see a ton on Amazon. Some $60 and some $2000. To my understanding a UPS is basically a battery backup. Any advice. I have a cheap surge protector that is 6 years old and need something good for a decent price (under $100) that will protect my gadgets. Dont wanna be cheap but dont wanna spend a ton. If that makes sense. Is this one good or bad? I have no idea what to look for? http://www.amazon.com/CyberPower-CP850AVRLCD-Intelligent-850VA-Tower/dp/B000RZPK1W/ref=sr_1_35?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1357871036&sr=1-35&keywords=ups+power+supply What W's should I look for? Advice is GREATLY appreciated! :)

    UPS stands for "uninterruptible power supply"... In other words..."battery back-up". That one is fine. Just make sure you let it charge 24-48 hours before you plug anything into it. That is the biggest mistake people make with them...is not charging it first.
