    Hello all,

    Im looking to mount about 60 ft. of LED strips around the perimiter of my room, i will be using these

    http://www.amazon.com/DC12V-Waterpr...&qid=1354248966&sr=1-2&keywords=rgb+led+strip

    I know that computer power supplies have 12v rails, and easily claim to power 300W, which should be suffice to power all of the strips, so my question is can it run all of that on the 12v rail on a devoted Power Supply Unit?

    Failing the PSU i plan on using this

    I don't see any issues so far but I've been deadly wrong before :p all input appreciated :)
