    Shuttle ST20G5 PSU + CPU question

    Hello,

    I have just been given a Shuttle ST20G5 with no power supply.
    I have a spare desktop 230W ATX psu sat about that fits quite nicely into the case, it would just need the power socket relocating. I have no need for an optical drive so the larger size isn't an issue.
    Would this work?
    Failing that, would an ordinary mini ATX psu do the job?

    As for the rest of the the machine, I am putting in an old Radeon X1600XT, I assume a 250w PSU will be up to running this card?

    Finally, is it true that that this board supports dual core?

    Many thanks.

    I chopped up the psu I had with a dremel and bolted it in, it works just fine. Plenty of space left for pci-e + pci cards and two HD's.
    Total cost £0
