Need a Good Budget UPS

TheMost

Simply.. Evolution !!
Hello, recently I my UPS stopped working and i know its really a waste to repair it.
I got that for free some 7 years back when i got my first PC for 40K :cool:

Since 5 years i have changed a lot in my PC and now it is a custom built !

My specs are as follows :

PSU - Cooler master eXtreme power plus 600W (RS-600-PCAR-E3)

CPU : Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
Kentsfield 65nm Technology
RAM : 4.00GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 397MHz
Motherboard : Intel Corporation DQ35MP (J1PR)
Graphics : ASUS 660 Ti CU2TOP OC
Hard Drives : 149GB Seagate ST3160815AS ATA Device (SATA)
....................1863GB Seagate ST2000DL003-9VT166 ATA Device (SATA)
Optical Drives : HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH22NP20 ATA Device
......................SONY DVD RW AW-G170A ATA Device

Gaming at - 45-50 inch HDTV

Please suggest me a good UPS
( I DONT NEED POWER BACKUP FOR MORE THAN 5 or 10 Mins )

Please give me two options
1) Budget UPS which satisfies my present config alone.
2) A UPS which doesn't hinder my upgrades for next 8 years ( I am planning some High end CPU and mobo upgrades next year )

Is there any buy back scheme which i can make use of ?


Thank you so much !

Is there going to be any problem if i buy a 1.3 kVA UPS from some other company rather than APC ??

if the company is reliable, then no..

PS: reliable in this context means the equipment they make, supply the rated power. ;)

Sorry..went disconnected from internet ..

There was some connection mistake ..
It is working fine now ... But
1) I am finding really hard to manage the cables in my old zebronics cabinet .. Wires are scratching at the cabinet fan .
2) My PC is spending more time at the entry screen than usual ( that screen which says "press F2 for BIOS" ) donno y :(

Should I adjust managing wires or should i buy a new cabinet ?
How much will it cost ? Can i get that under 6K ?

Thank You

best bet, get a new cabby. you hardly upgrade cabby/PSU, so its always better to get these as best as your budget would allow.

you can get plenty good cabinets under 4K. let other members advice on the models.

btw, you bought the GS700, so i'm guessing you will go for a major h/w upgrade soon, its better to get a cabby with good airflow and cable mgmt. ;)
