Selling a C134 case? Hello...I'd be interested in that!! As far as PS goes, can't beat the 90w Opus

im trying to pick out a DC-DC PSU. Obviously i have read everywhere and 1 million times about Opus, BUT, i already have a muchas shutdown controller and dont need a startup control. I plan on using a momentary switch to start when i want, in case i want to start the car but not the computer.
My specs are as follows:
EPIA M9000 (not on the mini-box wattage calculator )
20 gig 2.5" HD
Lilliput 7" TSK (but the lilliput is powered by its own regulator)
Creative USB External MP3+ soundcard (bus powered)
whatever ram is cheapest (prob a 256 meg stick)
Slimline DVD drive.
I would someday like to add GPS.
So I used the mini-box power estimator and it came up with 42 watts as teh ablsolute max for power consumption - while watching DVDs. So i was thinking a 70 watt power supply like Jeff Mucha's MPBS1 because it is small (size of a deck of cards).
I already have a radio shack 60 watt regulator (for my casetronics C134 case) which is getting scrapped for parts and the case is being sold. So i was thinking i could use this with a PW70 but then i read that it really only puts out 45 watts or so....
i checked the muchas PSU oon each rail against what the mini-box power estimator said i would need and it looks like i will be using more amps then the PSU puts out on the +%SB rail....but i dont know what that means....will it not work if this is the case?
I'm really confused about waht to get because there are those insdustrial 250w PSUs, but i dont think i need that - help me out here guys!!
Im a bit concerned about the MP3+ drawing alot of power...i assume the TSK doenst take much....(since the %V rail is where i seem to have problems.)
Thanks for all input!
