    If you paid attention to the thread itself, you would see that the original post has nothing to do with the thread title.

    P.S. I hope your ADD wasn't so bad that you got lost in the middle of the first sentence.
    I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.

    I plan on going 2 400GIG 7200rpm Harddrives, AMD 2500+ MP (mobile processor), 9600XT, 1Gigabyte of PC3200, couple usb/firewire devices, DVDRW Dual Format &DL, and a couple 80MM fans or 120MM fans all in a Micro ATX. IMO If i'm gonna through the hassle of installing a PC in my car, it might as well be midranged Tell me that's under 250watts...
