  • Probably asked already power issue...

    If it's been asked somewhere, please point me in the right dirrection.

    Q: To power EPIA M10000, Maxtor 200GB 7200RPM ATA133, and a Pioneer slot load CD-RW/DVD-ROM what power supply wattage would I need?

    I was thinking about getting the M1-ATX 90 Watt, or the OPUS 80 Watt from mp3car.com.

    I'm planning on using an amp to power the speakers.

    If either of those PSU's would work, is there anything else that I would need to get to connect them from car to mother board?

    Thx

    Edit: Oh yeah, is there any advantage to getting a more powerfull PSU? If so, which is recommended?

    That HD is probably going to eat up a lot of power.. Unfortunately, i've no idea how much..

    Just chiming in, i'm sure someone will come up with an actual, accurate answer!
