    Finalised to selection

    Ok, I've igured out what I'm going to use for my carputer...

    AMD Duron 1.4Ghz processor
    K7T Turbo LE Mobo
    SB Audigy MP3
    G3Ti200 Pro Video card
    40 GB Laptop HD
    DVD/CDRW Combo Drive.
    GPS system
    Lilliput 7" Touch Screen LCD

    Now, is This PSU alongside an ITPS going to be enough or am I going to need to power it off an inverter, which I realy dont want to do.

    Another question, is that PSU crap, is Audioforge a good name or no??

    I don't know too much about the construction of PSUs but the doesn't look like much. From the pictures alone I don't see how that thing could power a PC. Even with all notebook components. I've never heard of seen this PSU since now.

    Even if it could power it, ITPS are reported as unreliable and unfunctional.

    Opus 150w should do what you want.

    Ditch the notebook hard drive idea. You're already going with a full size mobo. Save your money and get a 3.5" "desktop" drive. They are just as reliable (I would argue more) as laptop drives. Unless you be doing some hardcore gaming you might also want to look into using onboard video. You're only working with a 7 inch screen to begin with. Use the money you'll save and get yourself an Opus.

    That PSU is designed for an EPIA mini-ITX motherboard. It's not going to do squat for your rig.
    I'd suggest going with an Opus (or similar) or a standard ATX power supply and an inverter.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Get yourself an Opus, I don't even need to click on the link to know that it's going to be crap. Just the fact that you mentioned using it with an ITPS told me that (as that is crap, too)
