The houshold power in Holland is 220V 50 Hrz. I want to travel light when I go so Im thinking that I pack all the boards and cards and CPU and just buy a tower and power suply when Im there and rebuild. is this sound thinking?
Would a European power supply work for my Assus motherboard and cards and CD ROM and such? that should be an international standard, yes?
Thanks in advance for any advice given.

That may be the best way to go considering you want light baggage. You may also be able to find a PSU more suited for that electrical system over there than in the US.

Actually the central European power grid is now 230 Volts, 50 Hz.

Lived there for 2 years!

Depending on your current computer power supply, it may have a 115/230 Volt switch on the back or it might be a switching power supply that will auto detect the line Voltage. The auto detect switchers will work almost anywhere. Laptops almost always use auto detecting switchers.

If you decide to tear down the machine, never fear, the Dutch are very computer savy. You will have no problem finding at least one computer store in almost every town, probably more than one.
