    heh, not sure what to get really ;\

    dont want to have it too expensive, but it needs to be small. i'm going to be bringing the system inside occasionally to hook it up to my lan for updates, so a 12v dc-dc psu is ruled out.

    what other options are available?

    its all about desire and simplicity:
    you want to connect some home electronics or looking for cost effective way to powe up carputer - psu+inverter
    if you're looking for effective and simple powering carputer - opus

    iG - That PSU you linked to, it is DC-DC but un-regulated etc, meaning you cannot hook it up to your car's system directly. The OPUS is made for one thing - Car DC-DC. It can be used in other things too, but it’s made for use in cars primarily. Oh, also, OPUS’ have ignition wire sensors, so it can power on and off based on your cars on and off status.
