A good electronic shop?

I've been to several electronic shops trying to find a power adapter with the following specifications:

12VDC
1000mA
60Hz

but with no luck, can anyone recommend me a good shop?
Thanks

You can get high-quality stable 12 v from a PC power supply. THere is just a small trick to turn on the PS withouth a board. Warning you may not be able to use your PS to power your computer after that because of damage to internal circuitry.

I wrote a post about this a long time ago:

I think it will give you more then 1000 mA. If not then you can wire 2 or more in parallel.
Max amp load is usually written for each voltage on a stickers on the power supply. You can also convert watts to amperes, but dont ask me the formula.

Boujikian at Dora, Incotel at Dora. I prefer Incotel.
ps: Samer, that formula works for dc power, so it's valid here.
