    Is this some mini tower?
    In theory this will work but if you install this thing you'll quickly want something more compact and discrete. Now I always suggest: laptop hard drive, slim dvd drive, no 1.44 meg floppy, and a dc-dc psu always. Everything else you have fun with.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    Samc, yes it is a mini-tower. I am more concerned about the quality of the components, and will look into re-casing them afterwards. I agree with the no-floppy, I haven't used a floppy disk in years.

    Thanks for the input.

    Research your power supply options.
    Inverters are less money but larger chance for noise
    DC to DC more money more effiecient, less noise

    Way more than you need. But that is not necessarily a bad thing.

    Power supplies are a big stumbling block for most installs. The bigger the system, the less options you have.

    My suggestion and recommendation for DC-DC power supply is the 150W Opus.
