Windows 7: Best way of changing voltage for PSU

An adapter is one more link in the chain of failure. I'm not saying the Amazon adapter is of poor quality, but a lot of adapters are made with cheap or substandard parts, increasing their risk of failure and/or fire. I work in electronics, if I don't have to use an adapter to accomplish something that a cord or cable will do, then I'm happy. A single cord is a much better alternative to a cord and an adapter.

Is that the exact same thing except a different input end? Also, what is the difference of the different IEC 320 standards?

It's the same thing, just a different input end. One that fits into a wall in Korea (I think).

This explains the IEC standards better than I can:

IEC 60320 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Oh so there are different IEC-320 standard plugs. Thank you for that info. Should I buy the cord straight from DigiKey or is there a better place?

You'll probably get the best quality for the price at Digi-Key.com or Mouser.com. I use both for work, and they're great suppliers. Never a problem.

Ok thank you. I'll leave it unsolved in case anyone else wants to tell me something.
