    Question how does this carputer setup sound?

    ok not sure if this is the right forum or not so forgive me if im wrong.

    while reading these forums ive noticed that there are pros and cons for going with a Via EPIA Mini-ITX, but i was wondering if this setup would work.

    VIA EPIA MS 12000 motherboard
    Morex 60W Vehicle PSU Kit
    a 20gig Laptop 2.5" Hard Drive
    Panasonic SlotLoad DVD-CD/RW drive
    512mb PC2100 Ram

    im mainly going to use the carputer for DVD, MP3, Music Video, and regular CD.

    any advice or input would be great!
    thanks!

    ditch the crappy psu for something like the m1-atx or an opus, otherwise looks good

    ok so you think the 90 watt Opus would work better?

    I guess you will be fine even with that Morex PSU. Do not worry. Well... unless you need a shutdown controller.

    I agree, everything else looks fine but you'll want a different power supply.

    I'm a fan of the M1 myself.. 've never used an opus.. but they seem similar.. but the M1 is cheaper.. (I think)

    M1 is half the price of the 90W Opus. I hope I didn't just make a mistake by not springing for the best.
