    Battery addition, or alternator upgrade, please help noob

    i got mk5 jetta, it's an electrical guzzler by itself

    my additions

    300/4 slash JL amp 300watts
    500/1 slash JL amo 500watts
    xbox 360 w/monitor 150-250watts
    computer 300watts
    extras under 50watts

    total of 1200-1300 watts extra
    should i add an extra battery, or alternator, or both for smoother running system, also i don't need any capacitors due to computer wake up from hibernation time is roughly 9-15 seconds

    TIA

    a wet cell is usually always< a agm cell of the same size. agm's are easier to charge, hold their charge, rest at a slightly higher voltage have more cca and more reserve
