    ATX will it work

    Hi, all!
    I'm Zoli from Hungary, I'M planing to build a carpc, but I can't build it from mini itx for example via epia 'cause I can't afford it, it' s a bit expensive for me.
    Iknow the available space, etc etc
    But, is it possible to build a carpc from micro ATX, if yes will it work?
    What parts do I need to work properly?

    Thanks

    Sure it will work.

    Start reading here: New to CarPCs? Don't know where to start?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    yep, it's possible. I have micro-ATX system that's doing fine. It needs a heavy PSU though (I've ordered a 320watt opus, but it's working on a regular 300watt desktop PSU now.)

    Note that the ATX formfactor doesn't necessitate the need for the beefy PSU. The choice of CPU does.

    Hello,

    "working on a regular 300watt desktop PSU now."
    So you have 220V in your car? or you hacked the desktop psu and it's works from tha car's battery?
    Sorry for silly question

    I'm in the testing-phase. It's sitting at my desk.
