    Thanks Fellas!

    I am wondering where I can find numbers for the max power draw for my planned devices? Without being able to measure the power consumption first hand, I can only guess at what my max usage under load might be.

    I found the mobo...I guess i will search around on google.

    Sometimes Newegg will have the specifics on 'em. I know Western Digital says on their website the power consumption of their devices.

    --DDR2 667 240 pin memory )2GB stick)
    --WD Scorpio Blue 500GB SATA (already own)
    --Sony Optiarc Black 8X DVD+R SATA Slim 8X Slot Loading DVD Burner
    --HD Radio (Visteon HDZ300 or Connected DMHD1000)
    --MitchJS serial cable interface for HD radio
    --M1-ATX 90 Watt (I want to power LCD touch screen, all drives and mobo)??
    --Lilliput 629 7" or Lilliput EBY-701 7" or some other LED powered touch Screen??
    --GPS mouse of some sort or a cable for my existing Hollux BT GPS reciever.


    I am undecided on a mini-itx case and a 4 channel amp for the car.


    Could use any help for recommendations or suggestions you all might have.

    Thanks!
    I would go with a M2-ATX, that will cover the MoBo, Screen and all devices, other then that it all looks good. If you do get the EBY701, I like to mention a flaw in the screen. While using it, if you accidently hit the auto adjust button it can not use 800x600 resolution anymore. Im so scared of hitting the button that I actually removed it from the case.

    Thanks HiJack.

    I wasn't aware of the EBY701 issues. Very good to know though. I may go with the 629 instead.

    The only real power requirement you need to get is the motherboard/cpu and video card if you have one, everything else is pretty standard from device to device.

    Also keep in mind that if you get that case, there isn't anywhere to put a PCI card, so if you ever wanted to put something in the PCI slot you would need to get a new case. Just thought I would point that out in case you missed it
