      Moving back to Pakistan -- Question related to bringing my gaming PC

      Will customs try and get money out of my 27'' monitor by saying it's a TV?

      My power supply is 750w. How do I make sure it doesn't get damaged by any fluctuations. What combination of UPS+ stabilizer do I need to maintain my monitor+gaming pc? How much will it cost in RS?

      Monitor will be fine. No charges.

      Can't answer the second question though. Someone else with more expertise can help you there.

      Monitor is not a TV .there is no custom duty on it . Keep it either packed in its original cover or keep the original receipt with you . 7 years ago I had bought my LG LCD monitor along with me from France .aid zero money after convincing custom officials .
      I have never kept my monitor on stabilizer or ups . .nothing has happened to it in these 7 years . Just install fuse and power surge protector in your home electricity box .

      You'd probably be better of selling your PC at home and buying a new one in Pakistan. Most things are available here.

      As for power supply fluctuations any computer UPS will suffice. They all have voltage regulation built in these days. It's called AVR. An 800va-1kva one will be enough for your needs:

      I assume you are moving from US?

      Is the power rating only 110V or 110 - 240V ?

      Pk has 220-240V , so if its 110 V then yes you would need some sort of converter

      and customs wouldnt ask for anything, if its for personal use and in low quantity..i.e 1 or 2..

      Will this work for both PC+Monitor? I've never used it before. How many hours does the battery last?

      most power supplies have the rating of 110v-230v 240v so it will be fine for low voltage mostly in summer
