    Post Power Supply Suggestion

    I've been lurking about these forums for a couple of weeks now, searching through the various threads & researching some of the power solutions. So, I have searched on this subject. However, prior to finding this forum, I jumped the gun & started ordering items. Most of the items were well thought out, but the power unit definitely wasn't. So far, I have ordered the following:

    1) Via Epia M10000 1GHz (w/ Nehemiah Core)
    2) 512MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM
    3) 30GB 5400RPM 2.5" HDD (w/ USB 2.0 Enclosure)
    4) 8x External USB 2.0 Slimline DVD-Rom
    5) Lilliput 7" VGA Touchscreen
    6) Morex Car Power Regulator Kit

    Items 1-5 seem to me to be better good choices, but I have my doubts about the Morex Car Power Regulator Kit. Now as you can see from my sig, I have the kit listed for sale. This is the only item I am unsure of.
    This now leaves me with a little bit of an issue. Should I keep the Morex & ditch the regulator portion for an ITPS w/ Tank Circuit or go w/ an Opus supply? I see the Opus supplies are a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. So, I ask the guru's of this forum for advice & thank you all in advance for any help you can toss my way.

    BTW: If this is in the wrong section, then I apologize in advance

    Opus rocks seriously. Less headaches after you FINALLY receive the product. I have only owned a Opus 150 and I could tell you I rarely had problems with it. Its pretty small also.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    Thanks for the input. Opus seems to be the way to go. I guess I shall see, assuming others give suggestions as well

    All I can see about that morex is that it will not survive a crank since its min Vin is 11 volts. IMHO its a piece of crap go with OPUS, build one yourself but get rid of that one.

    That is definitely a good thread & I am so surprised I didn't run across it...Anyway, I think I have been swayed to the Opus Supply...I'll keep everyone updated when I get theis project underway

    BTW, thanks for all the input...
