So from what I've read, a 550 W UPS would be overkill for my system: (http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Yardo/saved/CBhp99).
The part list quotes ~299 W usage without taking my capture card, webcam, and whatever monitor I'm going to use into consideration. Is this supposed to be an estimated benchmark wattage?
Does anyone have advice on what UPS would be adequate? (lasts 5-10min) I don't want to buy a kill-a-watt just to figure it out.
