    Help a noob pick a power supply.

    Title says it. I will be building my first carputer and as far as power supplies go I am quite lost at the moment. Any input would be appreciated.

    I would like a power supply which can start the computer with a reference from the ignition status. I would also like to be able to bypass the ignition reference feature with the flip of a switch for ECU tuning purposes, is this possible?

    I will be running a mini itx board with a 1.6GHz dual core AMD E-350 cpu , 8 GB of ram, a 2.5 form 60GB solid state drive, an internal pcie sound card and I will be using onboard video for a dual screen setup.

    Here's some of my parts:

    How much power would I likely be needing? Any suggestions on a particular power supply? Again any input is appreciated.

    My suggestion would be to use the M4ATX, just from personal experience, ive had the same one for over 5 years and no problems, plenty of power!!!

    Feel free to check out my installs if you like and my LCD gauge panel set up.
