Windows 7: Is there any way i can connect this LED strip to my PSU?

Is there any way i can connect this LED strip to my PSU?

I want to buy a good led strip to go with this (see image) rig, and i was thinking about buying a GREEN led strip to go with it (do you think green on blue with my pc will look good?), so i came up to this:

Amazon.com: Hitlights Green Flexible Ribbon LED Strip Light, 300 LEDs, 5 Meters (16.4 Feet) Spool, 12VDC Input (Adapter not included): Home Improvement

the reason of why i chose green lighting is because of my keyboard (see specs), just so they match...

but its not optimized for using it with a PSU, even though the PSU came with a bunch of cables... is there a GHETTO way of connecting the led strip to the psu?

also, i found this:

BitFenix BFA-ACL-60GK30-RP Case Accessory - Newegg.com

But it costs more than double the price from the 5m cable, and this is only 60cm... is it worth more money to buy a shorter led strip?

The Bitfenix Alchemy strips are made for a PC......and they work and look amazing. Don't "ghetto engineer" anything when it comes to your PSU........you are just asking for trouble.

Take a look at this site and you might find some alternatives that are friendlier on your wallet. Performance PCs Flexible LED Strips
