Who has PS/2 Xbox Touchscreen in car

What did you guys use to power say a Ps/2 or Xbox or 7"touchscreen I am installed a carputer soon with a lilliput touchscreen and a ps/2 or xbox in the future and would like yo know what everyone else uses?

A AC to DC inverter?? I would like not to use this path is there any way else? I am using a DC to DC power supply for the computer. If there a way to directly get DC power to the screen or gaming consoles or must a Inverter be used?

Thanks

you can do dc > dc for the screen... just check which voltage it needs.

As for the Xbox, it runs off AC power and does not go to an inverter first, like the screen/computer does, therefore w/o redoing the internal wiring, you will need a cd>ac inverter

Thanks for that info I just realized after you had mentioned that the monitor I will be using does accept dc input. As for the xbox could I not tap into the ATX like style of wires with the same Power supply for the comp as long as I matched up the correct voltage wires together or would that not work. also how about a PS/2 same problem as the xbox??

thanks
