    M2-atx

    Can I use an m2-atx to run my computer (Commell LV-666 board :Embedded VIA C3/Eden 1.0 / 1.2 GHz with VIA CLE 266 & VT8235,Onboard 10/100 Mbps LAN, Audio, AV/S-Video TV-out Interface 6 x USB, 2 x IEEE 1394, LPT, 2 x COM), a 7" tft lcd monitor, and two fans not counting the small processor fan? I will be using a bluetooth usb adapter, usb external dvd-rw drive (laptop in a usb enclosure), gps mouse, and usb for touch screen?

    If not what should I do to make this work. Should/can I wire my fans straight to a switched power source connected to the car battery? Thanks for the help
    What all (how many things) are you powering with your m2-atx 160watt power supply?

    i run a lot more then you want to, you should be fine. run the fans off the m2, it wont hurt it at all. the main thing youll want to worry about is how much mA your usb devices pull. usually we end up making our own self powered hubs to lessen the burden on the m2 and the mainboard.
