I would strongly recommend getting a UPS that is a pure sine wave unit. Some computer parts have problems even with a simulated sine wave unit. This is the one I have:

If you don't want one with that much power / cost just go to their web site and check out the other models. This page will help you select one of their power supplies. Just make sure you check the 'Sine Wave' box:

That one is not a pure sine wave unit. According to your build, it's 511W. This unit is rated for 600W and it's a pure sine wave:

The way I look at it is that your PSU and UPS might be the most important parts of your computer. They feed everything with power. A good UPS will not only protect your computer from damage like lightning, but it will feed it clean, continuous power (pure sine wave, hopefully). You can cut corners in other areas to save money, but I always get the best PSU and UPS that I can.

Just remember this: if you get this 600W unit and add another video card you will most likely be over the 600w output of this UPS. Or if you want to use it in your next build you'll have to keep that one under 600W also.

the one i linked is 900 watts not 600. I need it so that i can have my monitors hooked in as well. i really dont plan on getting a new pc anytime soon. my last one from 2008 can still run new games decently on mid to low settings and it cost around 1200

I know that one is 900W. I said that one is not a pure sine wave unit.
