Do I need a constant current or voltage power supply to drive 12V Halogen lights?

My apologies for this basic question. I need to replace a 12V power supply to drive 2x 20W halogen lights.
Led driver not made for Halogen lights which do not require either constant voltage or constant current.
Halogen lights are a thing of the past, wayyyyy too much heat dissipation.
It might work though, as they say , suck it and see.
Can only cook itself.

I'd be buying a couple of LED lights which, complete, and plug straight into mains supply, would be less than what you intend to pay for the LED driver.
