I don't need battery back up, so I'll get that out of the way first.
But, from what I've read, most of, if not all of the good UPS have circuit conditioning so that your pc/workstation always has clean power.
Do the good surge protector condition the power like the UPS or does it just protect against surges and spikes?
This is what I was looking at for surge protection: FRYS.com*|*HP
As for UPS, if I were to go that route, how do I choose the correct one? Is it based on just
runtime via batter or do I have to take into consideration my computer's total wattage usage? In other words, would a 250 watt UPS do jack to protect my computer with a 750 watt power supply and the host of components it runs?
