Rule of thumb when designing the system is 0.06 A per pixel and don't use more than 80% of the capacity of the power supply.
    Hopefully the strip lasts the season. The lights were on today! looked awesome besides the flicker here and there. I contacted amazon to see if the people had sent me to the 60amp power supply and they hadn't. guess I'm keeping the 110 strips off till i get the power supply.

    We did it!, thank you everyone that helped me. Lights are all up and on. So glad. Now I have to find a program to use and i am set. Lights are hard to see on the camera.

    thanks again
