Prices of UPS depend largely on power capacity. Popular power capacities for home use include 600VA, 650VA, and 700VA. A UPS of between 600VA and 700VA can comfortably power your PC with monitor. If you want to connect printer and scanner as well, it is advisable to use another UPS or a UPS with larger power capacity.
Another factor that can affect the price of your UPS is whether it is an offline or online UPS. Online UPS costs more and offers more possibility. If you are using a properly installed online UPS, once there is a power failure, the UPS will send instructions to your computer to save all your files, close applications, and shut down the system. All these can be done without your being there. This prolongs the life of your UPS battery. An online UPS can also be controlled remotely via a phone line.
For an offline UPS you have to do everything manually. Note however that the aim of a UPS is to enable you to properly shutdown your computer system during a power failure. Hence, once there is a power failure, you should immediately save all your files, close applications, and shut down the system. Waiting for your UPS to bleep continuously before shutting down will reduce the lifespan of your battery.
