    First Mini-ITX Build

    Hey,

    Im building a Mini-ITX system, this one won't be in a car however that may be the next ITX.

    Current Specs:

    Motherboard: Asus AT3N7A-I
    RAM: 2X 1GB PC2-6400 Bog Standard Memory
    Hard Drive: 250GB Seagate Momentus 2.5"
    Fans: 2X 80mm Zalman ZM-F1 Plus
    TV Tuner: CiT DVB-T USB TV Tuner
    On Button: Sharkoon PC Jump Start

    As you might have guessed im building my own case (hence the On button). The main aspects that have confused me is the power supply and the DC-DC converter. No idea how many watts I need or what a DC-DC converter is (Im using house mains if that helps). If you see anything im lacking please tell.

    Thanks in advance,
    Darkcutuan

    Well since you say it isn't going into a car, you don't need a DC-DC power supply. A standard PC power supply that you plug into the wall will be fine.

    If this is for a HTPC, then mp3car.com isn't really the right place for you. The HTPC section of AVS Forum would be an excellent resource.
