Yeah, but the cable-modem and main router are by my parents computer and not on a UPS, so my computer will be on, but I'm very limited on what I can do with it.

Where do you live?, it's a little like that where I live on the Isle of Wight, England.

Uninterpretable power supplies can be anywhere from 40 to about 150 + i dunno how they work though they have a rating i dunno weather its to do with your systems load like the power supply rating maybe another member can help here . If you go to the same shop you always do he should know your computer inside out and be able to tell you which rating to buy

His only lasted about 20minutes but the power cut lasted about 30 so he was happy i guess . Also he didnt have a router he only has one pc in his house so he just uses a usb powered modem.The only reason i want one is to protect my hard drives from power cuts

raffaz, havent seen you around much lately.
i personally dont feel the need to spend a lot of money on stuff like this. especially when they are fairly low end specs. i have a power surge protector on my plugs and if i see its bad weather outside i backup my work anyway, and once the powers gone i will just unplug my pc's from the wall.
