    You'll probably get more answers if you indicate which components you are actually going to use...
    Player: Pentium 166MMX, Amptron 598LMR MB w/onboard Sound, Video, LAN, 10.2 Gig Fujitsu Laptop HD, Arise 865 DC-DC Converter, Lexan Case, Custom Software w/Voice Interface, MS Access Based Playlists
    Car: 1986 Mazda RX-7 Turbo (highly modded), 1978 RX-7 Beater (Dead, parting out), 2001 Honda Insight
    "If one more body-kitted, cut-spring-lowered, farty-exhausted Civic revs on me at an intersection, I swear I'm going to get out of my car and cram their ridiculous double-decker aluminium wing firmly up their rump."

    Well it says somewhat clearly that he's going to have Two P3's, a Celeron and an Athlon in his PC... By my reckoning, that's 116w of power right there!

    maybe I have a misleading title. I was actually posting this info just "FYI" for people that wonder how much power computer components use.

    yeah. It's a tad misleading. It's really useful info however - that is... if newbies would actually search for it.
