I'm in a situation where the location of my gaming computer isn't in range of the outlet I need to plug it into. Due to spacing issues moving where the computer is located isn't an option.
Therefore I have a couple questions. First, is it ok to plug my computer into an extension cord in order to get it to the outlet? Second, if I can use an extension cord then do I need an extension cord with certain specifics, i.e. length, maximum load, etc....?
My computer is currently using the https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/LCfp99/evga-power-supply-220g20850xr power supply if that makes a difference for what kind of extension cord I need.
Thirdly, do I plug the computer into the extension cord and then directly into the outlet or can I also put it into my UPS? I currently have the following UPS (with battery backup) in place. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B005GZRUZW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Thanks for any advice as I am not power savvy in the least.
