According to the first product's specifications it will run for 2.4 minutes at 700W load.

 

Remember, your PSU draws up to 20% more than its rated wattage, so you could be drawing up to 1200W at peak. 

 

So in short, yes, but for as short of a period as a minute of backup power. This might be enough to stop what you're doing and shut down but in most cases you'll probably want a beefier UPS.

A good quality ATX power supply, like yours, as a power factor (PF) approaching unity and because Watts=VA x PF (1400 x 1) you will get close to 1400W from the BX1400.

 

I'm not sure what the power factor of your Sony monitor but if you intend to run that from your UPS as well then down rate to approximately 1200W so max power wise it's more than enough to run your PC.

 

The UPS is there to enable you to safely shut down your PC should the power fail and even if you were gaming at the time you'd have more than enough time to either shut down your PC manually or do it via software.

 

I'm interested to know why you think you need a UPS. Is it to keep the mains "clean" or are power outages a problem?

I have no experience of the PowerWalker UPS so I can't vouch for it's quality.

 

if it does everything stated in the specification then it will be more than enough for your needs.
