  • Proposed Setup - Please comment

    VIA EPIA M10000 Mini-ITX Mainboard
    512MB DDR RAM
    Panasonic Slot Load DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo Drive
    2.5" 80GB HD
    SB Audigy 2 ZS Sound Card
    Lilliput 8" VGA Touch Screen
    M1-ATX 90 Watt - Smart Automotive Power Supply
    Win XP Pro
    4 port USB hub
    Shuttle Express Controller
    Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-USB2
    Some kind of navigation (any suggestions?)

    Is the M1-ATX power supply going to be enough for this system?
    Am I missing anything besides adapters for the HD and DVD drive?
    Is there any way to mount the sound card parallel to the motherboard (like an L adapter or something)?
    Please post any helpful comments, I would like to get a jump on this project soon and I want to make sure I get it right (for the most part) the first time.

      Get a flexible PCI extender for the Soundcard, this will then allow you to mount it parallel to the motherboard.

      For the power question - do a search for Power Calculator on the forums.

        I wouldn't recommend a flexible PCI extender. All you need is a standard 1U PCI riser card.

          do any of the usb connections use power, like do i need to add those into the calculations?
