Really Big Battery...
Just wondering...is it even possible for someone to run a desktop PC and a monitor (and a small pair of speakers maybe) on a really big battery? Hmm I guess it COULD be feasible if you used lower-voltage parts and dont put a ton of fast drives in (like use a 5400RPM HDD or something that shouldn't need as much power to spin up) and then use just one CD-RW or something...and then put an LCD screen on the side.
Not to mention the battery must weigh a ton if there was one....

yup, You could hook up lots of car batteries in parallel, then into an inverter (convert DC to AC), then step it up to mains potential.
If you just used 1 battery. it wouldn't last very long. Oh and sulphuric acid is not the sort of thing you want in your PC room!

My UPS can keep my computer and 17" monitor running 15min+ ... with my 17" & 19" running an extended desktop, its closer to 7min.
