Which UPS for multiple computers?

Hi everyone.
So I've got two computers, each going to a surge protector.
I wanna get a UPS unit. The thing is that I will probably be getting a third computer within the next year.
So, I'd need a UPS unit for 3 computers (1 P2, 1 P3 and 1 P4), the big ass Sony E400 monitor, and my Belkin KVM switch at a minimum.

Do you all think I should go with three independent UPS units or buy a big one?

how much are you willing to spend? Also, when the UPS kicks in, what are your expected run time before the battery die? All these question add up in cost. You might want to goto and run their configuration to see what type of UPS fits your need.

I have a APC Back-UPS Pro 650 with 40% power left. Currently connected to the UPS:

[powered plugs]
450w PSU
Athlon XP 1900+ OCed to 2000+
15k rpm SCSI hard drive
80GB 7200rpm hard drive
20GB 7200rpm hard drive
2 CD burners
1 cd-rom
ATI Radeon 8500 w/fan
MBD chipset fan
6 x 80mm fans
neon light
Sony 19" CRT monitor
Linksys DSL Router
