5050 led strip outdoor install Qs

Hey Guys, looking to get some info on an outdoor led strip install around my deck. Here are my specs....
Looking to use 4 rolls of 5m (30 LEDs/m - 150/strip) 20m total. To reduce dimming, I plan on connecting only 2, 5m strips together (daisy chain) and power them with a dual output controller.
Wire plan...
Power source ---- ir controller ----led strip--- led strip
(From ir controller)|---- led strip ---- led strip
My list of components...
Led strips - http://www.ebay.com/itm/251582389009...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Power source - http://www.ebay.com/itm/161274098751...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

IR controller - http://www.ebay.com/itm/331282432950...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Q's
1. Will this power source and controller be powerful enough to control both sets (10m) of lights without dimming and/or burning my house down.
2. Should I add these amps in between each of the two sets to boost the amps/watts?
Amp- http://www.ebay.com/itm/161387972737...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
3. If I would "dual feed" each end of the two strip, would I need the amps?

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

I've installed 5050 strips around my screened in pool enclosure and under my gazebo. I bought all the strips on ebay and they came with wall transformers, IR controllers and 144 key remotes. Paid around $20 per 5 meter (16 ft) set. I purchased no additional power supplies or controls. So far the only problem I had was the peel and stick backing is junk. I bought 1/2" wide rolls of VHB outdoor tape on ebay. I've also put the LED strips under all my kitchen cabinets. Latest addition to my gazebo is a projector screen and optoma GT760 projector.

Here's a couple of pictures of my setup. Note the LED's under the top.
