  • All confused - power supplies

    Okay, was all set to buy the M2-ATX - now reading all the problems really not sure.

    I am hoping to run.

    Motherboard, mouse, keyboard, CPU Fan= 31 watts
    1. AMD Geode NX 1750 (cant seem to find this CPU on any of the power calculators ~estimate 25 watts max)
    2. USB GPS (BU-353 - 500 mA)
    3. 80 gb 3.5" drive (25 watts)
    4. 2 cooling fans (apart from the CPU cooler - 4 watts)
    5. 1 stick, 512 mb DDR Ram (10 watts)
    6. PCI card (4 watts)

    So total rounded up is 100 Watts? is that right? Any how do I know what would run off the 12V and what off the 5V rail? I think the only thing out of that running on the 5V rail is the USB GPS.


    7. Video card to run 800x480 (AGP? PCI?)
    8. Sound blaster (PCI)
    9. 7" Touchscreen

    If anyone can help me calculate the power requirements, and what they think the options (Opus, Carnetix, M2 or M1 ATX, etc.) I would REALLY appreciate. Please feel free to PM me if that is easier.
