I am sorry if these questions have already been answered but I ether can not find a concussive answer or nothing at all.

1. I have remade RAMPS v1.3 and a MK1 heat bed (http://www.ebay.com/itm/RepRap-MK1-Heatbed-Heated-Bed-Heat-Prusa-Mendel-/130587006465?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e67979601) I still need a power supply
1.1 What power supply do I need? An ATX power supply? Can I get a link or an explanation on; wattage, SATA or IDE, amps....

How to convert an ATX power supply

PSU build

10mm ply (3/8") should be thick enough after all you need to screw the belt clamps to it. I don't insulate mine and I use MDF at 55C for PLA it's not hot enough to burn it

I just ordered a 12V 20A Switching Power Supply off ebay that should be good enough to drive everything - for $28
