  • WTB: DSATX or similar PSU

    Like the title says. I was thinking of going with an m2-atx, but i'm reading of too many problems. I was also looking at an opus 180watt ps but it only seems to power 12v and I'd like to be able to power a laptop HD or 2.

    My setup so far:

    Eonon 7" touchscreen
    Commell lv670m+2.2ghz P4M+512mb pc2100
    Slot loading DVD+-RW in a usb enclosure (usb powered)
    80gb laptop HD (haven't bought it yet)

    Maybe I'll get some replys here, my initial post in the newbie forum netted me 0 help

    512mb DDR ram

    PSU????

    If you need help determining which power supply to use, then try posting in the power supply forum. In a nutshell, you need to determine/estimate how much current the system uses on the 3.3V, 5V, and 12V rails at 100% CPU load, and then pick a power supply that can supply that much current with a reasonable safety margin. There is an excellent FAQ for this in the power supply forum...I think it's a sticky.

    Good luck.

      BUMP for DSATX. Anyone? I'll even take a working m2-atx if it's cheap enough, but I would prefer a DSATX
