    I think that board is only single core though. If you will not be doing alot of stuff on it, then its cool. I plan on using these for my six other PC units in the car:

    Its the same thing as the board you linked too (processor wise) but is super thin. Doesnt generate much heat, and only require regulated 12V power in (Like a Laptop). It has its own PSU built onto it. I am not sure how you make this board work with shutdown and stuff, but I am using EWF and HORM so it doesnt matter.

    Take pictures of your whole car interior. You should have a small hatch in the rear that can fit the PC easily. My Durango has it, so I am sure your Nitro has it too.

    Holy crap that motherboard is sawweeet! So if I got that I wouldn't need a DC-DC PSU (so save $70+).. So would you be able to just run an accessory 12V line from the car to that or wouldn't what work?

    What exactly is EWF and HORM? I know they are some type of Windows installs but do they have full Windows functionality?

    And dude, what do you mean 6 PC units in your car?!? You have SIX PC's in your car!?

    You have a few options based on those photos. You could go under seat, you could gut that center console, plenty of room in the jack storage area as well. All depends on which way you want to go, any of those spots would work.

    I want to be able to output video to the headrest monitors while having something different on the main screen (GPS).. Do I use a dual video card? What if I want to output via RCA (because the VGA monitors are A LOT more $$)..

    Thanks!
    Anyone have an answer to this? I want to make sure I buy the correct hardware that will work for this solution so I don't have to come back and replace stuff later when I do it..

    Thanks

    No, not directly from the car, u'll toast the board. What you do is use a 12v Laptop adapter. They sell them for the car also. Thats all you would need.

    I have 7 PC units in the car. The main PC that everyone shares, then each passenger has his/her own personal unit. By pushing a button, you can toggle between the 2. Its all still on the drawing board though. My Main PC is finished, but the six units I still have to buy. I already have everything wired.

    In my install I took out the middle seat, that is were PC one is. The other six I put at the rear, I am going to make a hatch to hide it all.

    The center console will most def fit you PC and a few components. Measure though to confirm. When you do measure, remember to add length to account for the cables you have to connect, like VGA and DVI, etc.

    Here is a recent picture of the main PC.

    Are you currently using that motherboard you linked for your main system? Do you use EWF/HORM using the USB SSD functionality of that board?

    No, not for my main system. I actually hate INTEL, so my main system is AMD. An IEI Kino 690S1, with a Turion X2 1.9 ghz processor. Because my main system does so much and controls so many devices and runs alot in the background, I had to go with a dual core setup. The six other units will be the one I linked to. I plan on using EWF and HORM on those because they will be very limited in feature. All they are for is Internet, Music, Video and thats it. All six can access the media drive on the main PC via a ethernet network also installed.
