Well lets do the simple math and use a watt estimator along with some logic.

The motherboard/processor/video combo uses (I think 60 watts). I know for a fact that the processor alone uses 25 watts. And everything else may use up to 80 watts alone. I am not really sure on this one..

well i was hoping to be able to sell little mini-ITX windows home servers to people when windows home server comes out. I have a repair business and it would be great if we could sell people a tiny little server that backs up their computers, and then when something goes wrong with their computer they just bring them both in and it would make the repairs go a ton faster and cheaper for both of us.

It uses regular desktop memory, but the speed is only DDR2 400MHz. Might be able to save some money by getting that as opposed to the 533.

The problem is that the biggest ddr2400 stick on newegg is 512 and i need atleast 1gb.

PS: I never buy mini-ITX from Newegg, go to www.mini-box.com


Here is the board there: http://www.mini-box.com/Jetway-Versa...=8&category=99

There is also another site I use often, www.logicsupply.com which is also a great site to buy from.
