Question, I currently have a 20A Breaker for my room. Its already triping when I hook something like my air compressor up to it with all my computer stuff. So no doubt Ill need to upgrade it for when I hook up the extra computers.

What do I need to know before upgrading the breaker to a 30A?

Or how should I go about fixing the problem without costing allot of money.

I guess I need to find out the gauge of the wire?

Edit: I found my answer. I think im going to get another breaker put in and setup some new 10G wire and a 30A breaker for a power strip around the room. Ill post some pictures of how things are going tomorrow.
Run the 30a second breaker with 10ga wire that amp going to need it, will draw alot of power, had the same problem with my Denon AVR-5803 which draw a true 325w/ch 2ohms, and it will sound cleaner and never use a extension cord, and if you are going to use a power strip make sur it uses a 12ga wire or 10ga.
