    Opus alternatives?

    So the Opus is expensive, if I got a mini-atx board and built a custom case, could I use this power supply? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...748847141&rd=1

    For a low end P3/celeron mATX maybe but i don't think so. Why not look here:

    the m1-atx works great in my setup. see sig for specs - all running off an m1. as long as the cpu draws power from the 5 volt line you should be fine. so no high end athlons or p4's, but as mentioned a p3 or celeron based system should be fine. I read somewhere that other than the 12 volt line the m1 can handle as much as an opus 150 , you might want to verify that though.
    System: AMD Duron 1200+ , 512 MB ram , usb sb mp3+ , Tview 7" touchscreen , M1-ATX PSU , Slot Load iMac DVD-Rom , 40 GB laptop HDD, netgear USB 802.11g

    Progress: Installation: 90% Dash fabrication: 80%

    Parts Needed: USB GPS

    Ok, I will definately get it from this site. Now about motherboards, there are only 2 listed on this site. What is the big difference, other than $55?
