How to Calculate Power Consumption for a UPS?

I'm assuming there must be a website that does this simply and quickly. I want to get a UPS. Hoping someone knows something tried and true. Thanks.

Yeah, I used that. It's nice. I was hoping for something that would give me exact Ampage used, but that works. I can see which UPS I'll need and how much of it I'm using. Thanks!

I have a Tripp-lite 1000vu, 500 watt unit I'm using on my system now, but I'm putting together a new system with a enermax 600 watt PS and sli (someday) but I don't think I'll be using all 600 watts, I'm hoping it will still work?
