Are these a good idea?  Does it put too much strain on the power supply?  I'm not a fan of them myself, but a few co-workers have asked me.  I'm not a hardware guy at all!  Thanks for the help!

Cold Cathode lights don't put too much of a strain on the power supply - about 5 watts.

Hi fattumsdad,
actually it does almost nothing to the power supply ... .as the foltage and the amps it needs is but a little fraction of what your powersupply sends out .....

Cheers!
