    The UPS that provided back up for my PC has stopped working and I have been planning to buy a new one. But I recently bought a Staticon sine wave inverter at my house in Toronto. Can I connect my PC directly to Inverter or should I buy another UPS system anyway? If I buy a new UPS, can I connect it to the inverter so that I can get more back up? Any help will be very useful.

    Yes, you can use the "Staticon" invertor to run your PC. But if this is available, why go for a another UPS?

    What type of backup are you looking for? Looking at the link you provided, the inverter will ensure "clean" power to your PC, but in a power fail situation, both the PC and inverter will fail.

    Do you have the inverter already? That company makes a combination inverter and UPS device.
