I recently Found These Neat Looking and cheap LED strips. They Are Labeled 12V DC as the input voltage.

is there anyway that i can power these with my power supply or some batteries?

I currently have a Zalman Z9 Plus Mid Tower Case and a OCZ ModXStream 600W Power Supply.

to be honest, I don't think leds are really worth 10$ for a 10cm stripe. (hence why i am looking for them on ebay). just looking for a cheap solution to make my case glow a bit brighter. Well, it's not necessary, so... whatever.

Do you have any case fans installed?
You can get silent LED case fans,so it helps to get a cool look and cools hardwares!

You didn't mention in you origial post that you were looking for a cheap solution just that you wanted to know if those lights could be connected to your computer. Since they are for a car there would have to be some kind of modifactions made and you stated that you didn't want to be cutting and messing with wires. The only solution would be to get lights that were specificaly made for computer cases , I can't help it if the price is too high for you but that's what they are.
As stated by jijomathew an led case fan can add light to your case but that also cost money , it's less than the light strip but it's not cheap.
