    Car PC System Questions

    I have an A7N8X-DLX mobo, 2000+ CPU, 512 DDR (donít remember what speed) and an 80 gig WD HDD.

    My question: What PSU should I get to power this set up?

    I will be running an AGP Video card. NO DVD or CD Drive. I have a built in inverter (100W) in my car (2004 Toyota Matrix XR). I plan on using a Xenarc 7" touch screen in the dash.

    SO whatís my best power option? I'm proficient in electronics. If anyone has a good schematic and PCB layout for something that would work for me, that would rock.

    Is the 100 watts for the built in inverter RMS or peak? Kinda OT but i'm just curious.

    I think you'll need the Opus 150W to power that setup. I'm pretty sure that setup uses more than 100W.
