While most of us have a UPS for our PCs, quite a few don't. So imagine you are in a 1v1 clutch situation of a game-deciding round, and just at that moment, the power goes out, and naturally, your PC turns off.

Just a few extra minutes of power, and that frustrating loss could have easily been avoided.

Or imagine you have been gaming all day long, and then when you finally decided to finish the project that is due today, whoosh, the power goes out.

These moments of power outages can cause frustration, just like power spikes can cause damage to your expensive rig. This is where a UPS comes in and solves both problems.

UPS stands for uninterrupted power supply, and that is exactly what it does (provide uninterrupted power) along with protecting your costly rig from harmful power spikes and surges.

Now there are quite a few (or rather quite a lot of) options when buying a brand new UPS for your PC, and it may be pretty daunting for someone new to choose one.
