    atx POWER SUPPLY?

    Hey folks, quick question. I have a spare GA6WMM7 mobo lying around and want to throw it in my car, with a harddrive and a dvd drive. The hard drive will be a low 5400rpm one, and the dvd drive rarley used. The mobo comes with everything as standard (sound, video etc), and the only thing i may plug in is a wirless access card.

    Im thinking of getting a PW-70A power adaptor, but will it have enough power to run my setup?

    The details are :

    # 100W DC to DC Power Supply Unit
    # ATX Standard compliant
    # 12V operation
    # 100% silent operation
    # Small footprint
    # Plugs directly into the motherboard ATX connector, eliminating the power supply cable mess

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Or alternatively I would recommend this. It's an online "Power Supply Calculator" and should tell you all you need to know. There are others out there, some more geared to car PC setups. is your friend.
