Also, for the price of that surge supressor, spend an extra 20 bucks and get a 650VA battery backup instead. I only paid 54 for mine at best buy.

Not sure but its enough to run both my gaming rig and media server. Well it only ran my media server while i was setting it up, its running off of a little 600VA that i have my 42" tv on. I'm not too concerned about the long term as far as power goes, just want to keep the small surges and brownouts from frying stuff.
