Power strips don't protect against surges unless they're surge protectors.

Get a UPS to protect all your expensive electronic equipment. It will protect against voltage fluctuations. A $300 UPS is inexpensive compared to three monitors, no?

This is good unless you get a surge though some other wiring like modem or network cable like what just happened to me. Some surge protectors may have network surge suppression now...but one little surge killed the motherboard on my laptop.

I would invest in a UPS (Universal Power Supply) that has a built in Current Condition. Not only does it protect from surges, but it will make sure that the current of electricity your computer receives is steady.
