I need 2 ups to run my computers... Not looking for anything special, just something that works and isn't like 200 bucks. Not really looking to spend much more than 50, just something that will keep my pc's running during power flashes. My power company has been sucking a lot lately and dropping my power for short moments every other week all day one day every couple hours.

Thanks

Well I don't think you are going to be able to find two for $50. I just picked up a two of these each for $45 for my modem,switch, external hard drives, etc But we really don't have enough information to find out how many watts you need.

Though you should be looking for something with AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation) to deal with you brownout problems; If it doesn't have AVR then if the voltage drops but doesn't go out you will still loose your work.

yeah I was looking at those, hows it doing for ya ?
UPS still has them. But for my main computer I m using this one which has served me well. It has 8 outlets that are all hooked up to the battery. (None of that 4 battery 4 surge protected crap. If I want a surge protector I will by one separately, which I have.) The Belkin should be just fine for the system you have in you sig.
