that will do. I have no clue what requirements you will need, but that will deff do. Yeah, you want a momentary switch, good luck

Cheaper, + they ship to Uk. As to power requirements, I dunno, but barely anything. you should be fine as it is.

Get a momentary switch with a built in LED. This way the button will glow when you system is on. Just connect the LED to the PWR_ON header.

Once again...
