I'd imagine the transformer won't work. It take an 80w load so might have a opperating range 50-100w.

The LED's will total???? (guess 8w or so).

If you dim them the old dimmer won't work either.

I'd suggest you research the transformer spec and find out before doing anything more.
thanks for your quick response it saved my twitchy right finger from attacking the "buy it now" button :D

I agree with Cris5, although, evenb if they are in range, you may find they dont work satisfactorily, many trasformers/PSUs dont give a stable enough output, and you end up with flickering LEDs.
