i have found a nice small power supply that i plan to use as a internal replacement for my coleco, however it outputs only 5 volts, i have tested it and 5v only does work if you use a F18a as the video output device.  i am on the list to obtain an SGM in the future and i am curious if i do this mod am i shooting myself in the foot for later because if the SGM requires either 12v or -5v then i really need to obtain a different power supply now rather than later


can anyone help?

I use the F18a and SGM, along with an internal PS (only 5V is connected right now). The PS I use also has -5v and 12v taps available but they're not connected at the moment. You should be fine with yours though.
