Hi,

I want to have a Momentary, Pusb Button Switch for my Via C3
Motherboard.

The wires from the Motherboard will be connected to the Front Panel
Connectors of the Motherboard.

What are the specifications for this switch(in terms of Voltage and
Current) ?

with regards,
Ranga

Any switch you can buy will be able to handle this task. The ATX "power
switch" just shorts a signal line to ground. The maximum voltage across it
is probably 5V, the current through it negligible (a few mA).

A standard ATX spec front-panel switch handles a few mA at 5V. Strictly
speaking, at this voltage, you should use a button with gold-flashed
contacts for maximum reliability as there is insufficient voltage to break
down the oxide film that forms on "power" rated contacts; you would
probably get away with any switch that has "wiping" contacts though.
