should be fine your entire system including the monitor probly doesn't draw more then 380W at full tilt
that said you are only gonna get about 2 or 3 min of run time if the machine is at full load

honestly if you can afford to go with a slightly bigger unit 500-600 that way you have some leway for when the battery starts to get old

It lasts for about 15 minutes if my rig is running full power with about 30 minutes in idle with 500 and 250 watts of load respectively (factoring in power usage from both displays.)

Just remember to blow the dust out of it time to time as they use a fan for cooling. Tower one was more what i needed although plugs cn be a pain in the but but shit like this helps ( exmple ).

http://www.staples.com/Tripp-Lite-P022-001-2-SJT-Power-Extension-cord-120-V/product_IM1N66835

I got aa 6 plug one which it seems that staples dont have online at least and got it due to being small and only having a 6 inch cable with it which allowed me to plug in all the low powered items i needed too in it although they do not recommend you do that though but i think as long as the demand you put on it is reasonable should be ok.

I can imagine some people plugging a few comps in a few screens in that way which is way they say not to do it.



Anyways ran great over the 20+ power cuts we had over the last few years thats including the real short ones which saves the modem and router from rebooting and the WTF's while playing some thing..
