DC-DC > inverter, always. There are power consumption calculators floating around. Find out how much its gonna use and get a dc-dc which can handle it.
I have a standard computer monitor and no power supply for my computer. I am running an AMD 64 proccessor and 1gb ram and a 80 gig hdd. I am trying to determine if i can run everything off of a dc-dc, or if i need an inverter for the monitor anyways should i just run everything off of that. Just trying to figure out which way is smarter before i buy.
i have tried to find a schematic of one i can build. I am not anywhere near where i can get mail sent to me yet. But i do have access to a lot of elect components. Is there a way i can just build this thing myself?
Its beyond me. Not sure if anybody has tired that... given how much they cost, its probably not worth the time and effort.
