    Need some help with a psu

    Hi guys, I am a new member here and like the site alot. Well first off, I am building a mp3 box(duh) and trying to make it as SMALL as possible. So far I have a small AT mobo, k6-2, 4 gig hdd, ram and a 20x2 lcd. Now I need a powersupply, but from what I understand the psu is probably the big space eater, and I am trying to make my box as thin as possible. Basically I want some help/advice on what power supply I can use to make it as slim as possible. Also I would like to avoid the use of an inverter, so far I have been looking for laptop power supplies and I can;t really find any. Although I have found alot of laptop DC/DC power cards, DC/DC power chargers cards, and other thigns like DC/DC sub card. Now I have no idea what those things are, and was wondering if those are not power supplies. So if you guys could help direct me on the laptop power supply parts or even a custom/brand name power supply I would really apprecitae it, but it has to be very very small and thin so I can make the whole box small and thin

    thanks guys

    Last I checked, about $75 US. They're very good supplies.
