Question Should I plug my RM850x to a surge protector?

I live in Mexico and sometimes (once every 6 months on average), electricity flickers for a second, not enough for some equipment (like a TV) to go off but enough for something like a PS4 to turn off and make awful noises from the spinning disk.

Should I connect my PSU RM850x to a AVR or surge protector or UPS?

I'd connect it to a UPS. In my home, my desktop runs through one, all TV's, the satellite box and a few other devices that are power sensitive. That makes for seven UPS in my home.

Surge protector, at least. That won't help with the drops.
UPS ideally. That will help.
