ObTongueInCheekPedantic: 3A is not a "LARGE" power supply. 12-15 @20A is
PC power supplies are kicking out 5V and 12V at some serious amperage these

Look at the "FW Series" (FW == Firewall? *grin*)
EPS270-ND (12V @6.0 Amp)
EPS268-ND (12V @4.5 Amp)
One uses a DIN connector, the other, I didn't read too close, but it might
be barrel or bare wire end. Adapting a new barrel connector should be easy
Those should do you pretty well for under $80, and not weigh a ton.
