this should give 80 percent at the 75 watt and up it is 45 bucks the solution above is 87 percent and costs about 100 .
if op pulls 50 watts average endlessly the 80 percent is 62.5 watts the 87 percent is 57.5 watts so 24/7/365 is 43.8 k watts a year at 20 cents per k watt he breaks even in about 6 years
but atech has a review on it

if the op has 115.0 volt power source .
this has a 79 percent at 38 watts and a 84 percent at 76 watts.
At 84% this would pull 59.5 watts for a constant 50 watt pull. the 87 % would pull 57.5 that is only 2 watts an hour or 17.5 k watts at the same 20 cents a k watt more then 13 years to break even.
