    Hello, I am from Russia ) Therefore my English is not so perfect. Mostly we are drinking vodka and dancing with bears. And in a short break I am going to built a carpc in my Mercedes C-class.
    So I am going to use
    mAtx mother board with integrated video
    Pentium Celeron 1.4 Ghz CPU
    M-Audio 24 bit 92 kHz pci internal sound (I need SQ firs of all) + mic in for phone applications
    OPUS 150 W DC-DC power supply
    slim DVD Panasonic sloat load
    512 Mb ulow profile
    80 Gb notebook HDD
    USB FM tuner
    USB bluetooth dongle
    USB Powermate
    GPS receiver
    Lilli touch screen.

    So is it OK for DVD - navi - phone and so on?

    Are you insinuating that you're drunk enough to dance with women who resemble bears or drunk enough to dance with an actual bear?
    Either way, you should really cut down on the vodka, comrade!

    The system looks good for what you want to accomplish. The only thing that I'm unsure about is whether the Opus 150w will power that system.
    First off, you're either going to use a Pentium 4 CPU or a Celeron. There is no Pentium Celeron. In order to determine the power draw for the CPU (the most critical figure for determining power needs), you have to know wxactly want CPU you're going to use.

    If you're going to be using a mobile Celeron, that draws a scant 24.5w, in which case the Opus 150w would work just fine.
    If you're going to use an LV Pentium M-738, it draws a scant 10w. Again, the Opus 150w would be fine. I'd also expect this CPU to be very pricey.
    If you're looking at a P4 1.4G, it draws 69.1-73.7w (depending on series), which is more than the Opus 150w can supply.

    We created a FAQ about DC-DC power supplies and their capabilities. It's located here: FAQ: Will <insert PSU model> Power Supply work with my system?
    Also, the FAQ Emporium is a wealth of knowledge. You can find it here: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/the-faq-emporium/
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?
