What size interruptable power supply is required for a computer and CRT monitor?

Is this the same if a TFT monitor is used?

TFT use less power. You should get the biggest you can afford if you are going to use one. So it stays on longer than ten minutes, so you can shut down safely all hardware

My problem is that I thought that a computer power draw was 250W, and a 17in CRT monitor was 250W (500W total) and yet the advertising suggests that a 300W rating is sufficient (See Belkin advert below). surely this would be overloaded.

"The UPS can support up to a 500VA load, and so this model is ideally suited for PCs that are up to 1.3 GHz in speed, with either a 15" or 17" monitor. If you plan to use a more powerful PC, or server, Belkin recommend you move up to their Universal or Net UPS series. With its 500VA/300W rating the PSU is good for up to 13 minutes powering a system (within its specs) with a 17" monitor. It takes approximately eight hours to charge the UPS battery to 90%. "
