  • What are some recommendations for a power supply?

    I have basically completed the parts accumulation for my system but I am unsure as to what power supply to get. I definitely want a startup/shutdown controller but I am open to suggestions. I will pay what is necessary to get what I need. Here is the layout for my system:

    MSI KM4M-V mATX Motherboard
    AMD Sempron 2400+ Processor
    SAMSUNG 512MB PC3200 DDR400 Ram
    CHAINTECH AV-710 PCI 7.1 Soundcard
    Holux GM-210 GPS Receiver
    Solidtek ACK-571 Mini Wireless Keyboard with Built-in Pointing Device
    Rear View Camera
    Lilliput 619GL-70NP/C/T Touchscreen Monitor
    IH002 - Motorized In-dash Project Housing For Lilliput 7" VGA LCD
    Some sort of USB Hub (Powered or Non depending on what's needed)

    That's my system. Could someone recommend a power supply or a way to figure out my power needs.

    Thanks in advance

    figure out how much power the whole system is going to pull between the three main power rails (12, 5, and 3.3v) and find a psu that will handle that power requirement.
    rebuilding carpc... kinda..

      I would but I am not exactly sure how to do that. Can you elaborate on the process?
      Thanks for the help though.

        well..its going to take some time on your part...but you have to look at the specs for everything you plan on powering off the psu..and add it up!

        AMDs tend to be a little power hungry but you migh tbe able to get away with an opus 150. i would look into it a little more though... you might have to go the inverter route...
