There are two main factors that determine how long your ups will supply power or enough power. First is amperage drawn, how big of a power supply is in your computer, what type and how big of a monitor and secondly the size of the battery.

Have two UPSes, one in my bedroom, so I always have my critical components and one for my DVR's.

Have quality power strips for all the devices less than 2 A instead of plugging them directly into a UPS battery backup receptacle, have several devices on each power strip, perhaps, totaling 3 A.
