New system design...power issues...
My carputer is a Shuttle with P4 2.8ghz, 512mb ram, onboard ATI Raddon 9100, SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZX, floppy drive, and 80gb 2.5" HDD.
The PSU to the carputer will be a 150watt OPUS hardwired to the vehicle's battery.
Other components include 2 USB hubs with their own power supply and with USB touch screen, USB wireless keyboard and mouse, and a USB external DVD drive connected to them. The screen will be a xenarc 10.4" lcd.
I already have an inverter in my vehicle to supply power to a VCR and PS2. So could I just get power from the inverter for the 2 USB hub ? For the components that attaches to the USB hub, do they get power from the USB hub ?
Also for the xenarc 10.4" lcd, it requires a 12v power. Could I just hardwire it to a 12v switch from my vehicle ?
Bascically if my system is wired this way, will there be any problem ?
