    Pico PSU?

    Hi, I just saw the Pico PSU 120w on Logic Supply for 50$:
    witch seems a good deal to me, but i have some questions;

    -Will this 120w PSU be able to supply:
    -Pentium 3 mini-itx mobo
    -Pentium 3 cpu+ active cooler
    -1 stick of 256meg ram
    -laptop harddrive

    Thats not much, there no optical.
    Oh and , WTF is that connector on that 2nd picture, looks like the input. What do i input in it? Let's say if i want to plus that inside the house, do i need something else?

    Oh and BTW, anyone got some suggestion for a P3 s370 mobo mini-itx?

    Read the spec for the supply, it says you need a 12v REGULATED supply. Its useless in a car unless you have another power supply to regulate the car voltage which isn't 12v to 12v.

    There is an excellent (and growing) writeup on powering your PC on the mp3car wiki:
