I just brought my PC back to Las Vegas and sadly where I live I dont have access to a power outlet outside. I remeber seeing a post somewhere about using a power inverter to run it off your car battery. Does have any suggestions on where to find one and what one I should buy?

Do a search on www.BestBuy.com for "Power Inverter" It will bring up 4 of them anything from 250W to 1000W.

I saw several nice ones at Costco. Their strongest one (1000w?) was under $100.

I ended up buying this one: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=1072287374780&skuId=6290989&type=product

It works well, but I have to go 1 number up from the settings to get the right amount of power.
