    i cant find 'the simplest' becuz i c stuff like www.dc2dc.com but am not sure how u connect it from ur car battery and if it well work just with that or if u need sumthing else.

    presumably running the red wire to my motherboard will not work because i have never read about that b4.

    Lots of ways.

    This is my first carputer.. and I've decided to go for a 150W Opus DC-DC Supply.. it does exactly what I need in the car - It costs a bit, but it's worth it I think.

    http://www.thisstrife.com/carproject..._chapter_4.asp has a really good power guide for newbies in the downloads and resources section.

    how do you actually connect anything to the battery though?


    Also where is the cheapest dc 2dc converter in england (that will do the job)
