starting carpc project over, have to use diff. mobo. school me on powersupplies!
ORIGINALLY, I was using a laptop motherboard, which had the AC/DC powerbrick, which I was going to run off of an inverter.
That project has been scrapped. I am NOW using an ATX MSI 645 Ultra motherboard, p4 2.0ghz, 2x256 ram, radeon 9200 128mb, and various USB devices.
I've been reading around and found these on www.mini-box.com :
These are both 12v DC-DC Powersupplies (which would take the inverter out)
I know they are designed specifically for ITX mobos. Will they work with normal ATX mobos? Will I need more to go with this? shutdown controller? ITPS? etc?
If i'm totally going in the wrong direction please educate me. DC-DC looks like the best solution, and I can't grasp what else I would need.
Thanks for the suggestions and knowledge ! :D
