    How To Power & Test my setup in a Test Lab

    Hey all,

    So here's my situation. I'm currently on active-duty deployment with the military and want to start testing my new CarPC before I get home again, so I will have most of the bugs worked out when I get home to install it. I spend ridiculous amounts of time researching these posts, and have managed to gleam the best and brightest ideas from all of you out there, so let me be the first to say 'Thank you' and keep up the good work everyone. Now for the hard part..

    I want to be able to power and test the following components here using AC power. Obviously I'll need to buy some sort of power converter to change some of this from AC-to-DC, and certain gauges of wire to do it all. As always, I'm open to your insight, suggestions, criticisms, guidance, yada yada..

    Here's my specs so far..

    - [Requirements] Description
