It even comes with the P4-ATX adapter already built-in.
What say you?
Done deal! if you say 90W its all I need.... then lets do it!
Thank you for all your help!
Now I don't know much about PICO's why are they so small and so good?

They can be small because all they do is take 12V and convert it to the 12V, 5V, 3.3V, etc. your PC needs (hence DC-DC power supply). The AC-DC conversion is done by the power brick. This process is where the heat is generated and that's now taken outside the PC case. This is much like a laptop. The load of a small PC better matches the load of the AC adapter so it operates in a efficient range unlike say a 400W ATX power supply where at 40W you're running at 10% load where it's not efficient. With the AC adapter you're more like 50% of load.
