            kinda like that?

            so basically do you have a psu? a screen, etc? those are the basics that seperate regular desktops from carpc's.

                  looks like u have the basics.., but do u have a PSU?


                  • #10
                    Yes, thats the thing im stuck at. I didnt want to purchase it until i didnt finish uploading all the softwares on the carputer first. I dont even know which one to purchase. I looked at a thread here and calculated that i would need 70w PSU (from the CPU). But i got confused because i dont know if the other parts that i would hook up to it (i.e sound card), would take more power.

                      EVERYTHING hooked up to the mobo, or usb will draw power (watts)

                      find the total wattage your system needs, and get a power supply that can handle that much (personally, if my system needed say, 120watts, i'd go for a 160watt power supply, even though they have 120watt supplies, just for future additions if i ever need them, then no need to buy another supply :T)

                      but if ur cpu/mobo only need 70watts, ur gonna be hard pressed to need anymore than a 160w at best, even with multiple USB things, the hard drive and screen
