I personally recommend APC or Tripp-Lite over Cyber-Power for most users.

APC has a number of guides and white papers to help you choose a UPS.

I am running an older version of this UPS.

This is the APC model similar to the Cyber-Power from Dell.

Keep in mind that for both the monitors and the computer you very seldom use the full power rating. I would expect your typical draw to be around 200 Watts.

In addition to my computer and monitor, I run a cord from the UPS to my DSL modem and primary router.
