    Will M2-ATX be able to power these?

    Hi fellas,

    I already have an M2-ATX 160W power supply for my custom build and would like to keep it this way through my update.

    The list of hardware I'd like to power from this is:

    - Asus P5G41M LX (s775, DDR2, VGA, G41) mobo
    - Intel Pentium E6500 CPU
    - 2GB RAM of DDR2
    - 3.5 HDD 7200 WD 80 GB
    - Lilliput sceen
    - Rear view camera
    - Couple of usb devices

    I'm already powering everything with an old P3 mobo-cpu-ram combo just fine right now.

    Thanks a lot!

    Well it turns out that M2-ATX can power all these

    I only had to get (better yet hack two other crappy ATX's to get) the two 4 Pin Molex P4 12V Power Connectors to the mobo and M2-ATX, and also hack it to grab a more stable 12V power source for the screen.
    Apparently the 4 Pin Molex 12V line would drop to 11.4 with the HD connected and the lilliput refused to start with this voltage.
