Default UPS for PC/Monitor with usb connection?

Does anybody know if they make UPS with usb connection to the pc? i remember the old ones connected to the pc via the serial port. My PC doesnt have serial so i was wondering if i can get one so i can connect it through usb to sort out shutdown times etc

Yes they do my UPS has a USB on the back. Comes with the software too.

Almost all of the systems do now I think. What UPS were you looking at?

hi again Baez

Forgot to tell you that i fixed the audio problem by buying a pci soundcard. Thanks for all the help.

Not looking for anything special. I do have a UPS (mainly use it just to avoid spikes) but its too small for my system and also doesnt have usb. So im thinking of getting another one which also has usb so i can tell it when to shut down etc..

Glad I could help.

This is the model I have: Newegg.com - CyberPower Intelligent LCD Series GreenPower UPS CP1350AVRLCD 1350 VA 810 Watts 4 x 5-15R Battery/Surge Protected 4 x 5-15R Surge Protected Outlets UPS - UPS

I've had for about 2 years and it hasn't given me one problem yet. I have an 800W PSU and it lasts around an hour when the power goes out. It comes with the USB cable and software to set specific times.

APC's tend to catch fire the odd time. People are starting to joke that it's now a "feature" .
