I'm in the market for a battery back up unit. I just want something that in the event of a power failure will shut down my system within like a minute.
I'm currently looking at the 875VA model "Geek Squad" at Best Buy.

A couple questions.
1. Do I have to use the software if running XP Pro? As I said above, I mainly want to use software to auto shut the system down if power goes out. I leave my PC on 24/7 and I'm not home a good deal of that time to manually shut it down.
2. Is this a decent unit? I only plan to plug the PC into the battery back up portion. E6750, 2GB, 8800GTS, 2 HDD's, Antec 650 True power Trio, Audigy 2ZS.
Any help is appreciated. I read the software for the above unit eats up memory so I prefer not to use it at all.
