Added one to your list, your not going to be running 400w and at a load capacity of 510w your up time should be around 5-10 minutes. This one was actually cheaper than most 500w UPS systems. Personally I buy nothing but CyberPower, I highly recommend them.

Thank you for your response! If I'm looking for a UPS, should I be looking at the VA Capacity or the W Capacity?

Wattage is what your looking for when choosing a UPS.

(This was pulled from another site)

How much UPS capacity (wattage) do you need?

Estimating Capacity Requirements

If the total current drawn by connected equipment exceeds the UPS system's capacity, the UPS becomes overloaded. If the UPS is overloaded, it will drop the load during an outage instead of switching to battery mode. You can estimate your UPS capacity requirement by totaling the wattage requirements of all the equipment you plan to connect to the UPS system. You should refer to the equipment manufacturer's documentation to find the wattage. If you can't find any printed or online documentation, refer to the equipment nameplate. If your equipment lists its power requirements in amps, multiply the number of amps by the AC voltage to estimate wattage.

Sorry for the late response, and thank you very much for replying! So, looking at my build, what Wattage Capacity should I look for? Is the one you suggested above be ideal? Because I might just look for the same capacity and specs of it but may look for another brand because that may not be available where I live.

Thanks!

I'm from the Philippines. I saw an APC brand but it's only 650VA. I saw a Silvertec brand with 1000VA, but I don't know if it's a good brand.
