    90w or 150w

    I have decided to buy an Opus. I will leave the reasons for the other Opus threads. However, I would like to know which wattage I should get. I am powering an EPIA 10000 (Nehemiah), a Maxtor 120gb One-Touch drive (12v), and a 160x32px Noritake VFD (no more than 550mA at 5v)

    Am I safe with the 90W or should I go for 150W?

    The would say go with the 90 watt for that setup. The 90 watt is designed for those ITX boards they work well together.

    Cool, even with the 120gb usb2.0 drive? I know the things wall wart is rated around 2A, but I know they are usually more than the drive will ever need.

    If you're planning to do more in the future. Like adding lots of other stuff or even upgrading your board, go with the 150w. Then at least you'll be futureproof for the next couple of upgrades.
