    Dc-Dc Atx Options? Possible Schematic?

    I know there have been plenty of posts about options other than Opus and other expensive power supplies, but i think we need to brain storm about some practical solutions to the budget minded car-puters. So would everyone like to list some options about powering ther puters that worked for them?
    A wonderful idea would be for someone to post the schematic of how to buy a new transformer to re-soder into the AC-DC atx to make it Dc-Dc using preslabs example in Anyone try a Forward Converter?
    I personally am up to some electronics, but when it comes to rewinding transformers thats a little beyond my scope. Just buying a new one would be a lot cheaper.

    there have been posts of 200 watt power suppies (dc-dc) .. seem pretty good ... even if it ouputs only a 100 watts .,.. still at 60$ its a good price

    new 200 watt PW200M DC DC converter?

    at least thats what i think .... or an airse power supply (those are more trusted) 120watts like 70-80$ ... still much better then 200$ or 150$.. for opus .... 150watt .. witch is very difficoult to get .. at even those prices..

    Convert Ac Atx to DC Atx in easy steps?

    As cheap as 120VAC atx adapters are (15-50 dollars) someone here has to know of an easy way to modify them to accept 8-15VDC input? This would solve A LOT of peoples problems with power supplies not to mention Major $$$$. So anyone up to explaining how to do this in a simple to understand method?? Thanks!
