        obvioulsy you went with an inverter on that install IF your infact being serious with that

        im beggining to question whether i really need an opus with wat im building itll probaly be 2 much for it and i have 2 sets of batteries and a battery isolator so im not sure what route to go.

        by the way the show sucked one guy there had a m10k epia and tried to tell me it ran at 2 ghz i laughed at him

            Nice system!
            That's almost identical to the list I gave to my buddy, who has been out of the loop for the last year cause of school. He wasnt sure what to go with (or what pciX was for that matter!) so I gave him a list and some descriptions.
            I told him to go with the AIW card, from newegg, cause it's pimp, and he has a tiny tv anyway.
            EDIT: Actually it was this card I recommended, cause AGP is out man. hehe
            Carputer status: [-*---------]
            Im thinking laptop...

              This is for a carputer I thought it was about a home PC, esp. since it was in the off-topic section

              This system was for my friend's home.

              Yeh, my friend was in Russia for 2 years, and he was tired of his laptop and his 700mhz emachines
