A UPS battery will work.  If it's just for one PC and less than a minute, I wouldn't go too crazy with the price.  This should do the trick:

If going the UPS route, it will be necessary to shut the system off once to install the UPS between the wall socket and the system.  However, hopefully you can choose an convenient time to do that.
