bigger capacitors meaning it can hold x more power, ex current computers have capacitors that if electricity goes out hold enough power for one second in esscence i want one that can hold it longer...thats not the most exact defination of a capacitor but it should work, enough to get people who know what im talking about to reply

daPyr0x got it right its called a UPS or uninterruptible power supply.  If you want your computer to stay on after the power goes out get one for that.  The capacitors in a power supplies are for filtering the signal going into the power regulators on the mobo.  Putting larger capacitors into a power supply just smoothes out the bumps in the current better.

I got a 450v USP by energizer, real nice one, only $10 shipped :lol:. They are really going down in price. But the uptime is always BS, mine can stay about 8 min, with my comp and moniter. But with a 19" moniter and an average computer, its only about 3-4 min. This is with 450v, some only have 300v.
