#1) Why are my power supplies getting burned out over and over? The last one you could even smell it burning after it went bad. The 550w should of been enough to power my system.
#2) Which UPS should I think about buying, and how many watts or VA is enough? I have no knowledge of UPS's at all. I had an electrition come to my house and tell me the outlet I have in my bedroom is not grounded(the one my pc is hooked up to), will the UPS correct this?
Here are the specs on my system and what I will be connecting to the same outlet
