  • Powering My System

    Hey I Need a power supply that will power

    amd alhlon 2200 (running 1.6) board + prosessor fan, 80Gb HDD, Keyboard, Mouse

    USB - tft touch screen, usb radio, GPS, Buletooth, Laptop DVD RW + Sound Blaster

    and also a gforce 4 Graphics Card 128mb

    i want an inteligent one that will stay on approx 15mins after the car is off, or i can shut down via a switch.

    could i get 2 power supplies n join them together in paralell, then i could get 2 x M2atx supplies n have a 300w psu, whats the diffrence between a regulated n non regulated PSU

    i was thinking of getting a usb hub n one of those pico power supplies n using that to power the usb, that should take some strain out of the system, all comments wlcome

    PS im in the UK!

        there's a thread about running 2 M2-ATXs. Try a search in the PSU forum for it.
