    I've bought a PSU from ebay:

    150W MINI-ITX-PSU

    But are people really connecting their MONITOR to this type of PSU aswell? How do you do that?

    I have about the same setup, but it's not built yet, so I guess it can handle it, as calculated power consumption on my setup is 45W + monitor.

    I wired my monitor power cable to the +12 and GND of a Molex connector to plug it into my PSU.

    I've been running my entire system of the M2-ATX. Intel board, Monitor (LED Lilliput), SB Audigy PCI, Hard Drive (to be replaced with SSD soon), USB DVD-ROM, GPS, EVDO, etc.

    my monitor + XM unit + computer runs all off the PS. you will be fine, almost all the monitors take a 12v connection.. simply mod a molex connector (such as ripping one off a fan) and put that on the end of the monitor power cord.

    But how much Ampere can the Molex take? My monitor eats 3A @12V

    probably OK with that, a lot of graphics cards which need 6-pin PCI-e power ship with a 2 Molex to 6-pin adapter, IIRC the 6-pin connector is good for up to 75W, which means each Molex should be half that, or about what you need.
