    I was in the market for a power supply to power 12v led strips. Taking a current reading the strips by themselves draw 65 watts.

    What should I look for in a power supply and where is the best place to buy it?

    Can I buy one that is good quality and doesn't put out much RF noise that will interfere with my wifi or a nearby stereo?

    I'm guessing I should buy one that can handle 20% more power or greater than my load?

    Any thoughts or links would be great!

    P = V x I

    and yup, add your 10 - 20% for some headroom :)
