  • '95 Nissan Maxima SE

    Still just starting off, but I figgured that i would start up in here.

    First off, Hi and a thank you to all the forums for all the useful info.

    my system(probably)
    Intel C2D Merom T7XXX
    (can't decide on which, I work for Intel so they are 50% off)
    Kontron 986LCD miniITX
    2GB Kingston ddr2-667
    8GB Trancend CF card
    (plugs right in the board, will probably put windows and the page file here)
    debating getting a ransflective screen or just a normal 7"
    Travla-C138 case (probably will replace the power supply, but i'm not sure)

    That's about where i'm at right now.

    and here's where it's going (cell phone cam, meh)

      Looks good, but I don't get the picture? That can't be what you want to do? There's no screen? Maybe I'm just being blond here
      Planning: It's not my thing...
      Testing: Not really my thing either...
      Install: Guess around 60% Software takes soooo long....

        I just got all the stuff i need together to start up a computer. I'm still a bit iffy on the sound card, but i'll settle on that one eventually.

        I'm going for good sound as a goal, that's why the x-meridian card looks pretty good. I have an x-fi in my computer at home, but there's a butt load of stuff running in the background with it and i figgure something else would be good to compair with.

        The double din is nearly perfect for a widescreen 7" so i'm just gona stuff that in there. Putting the computer in the trunk, with the amps. Probably route a powered USB hub into the armrest storage thingy and plug in a external slot load CD drive there.

        I just got a USB GPS reviever today and played around with GooPS, a plugin for Google Earth. It was awesome watching my drive to work on my laptop.

        The motherboard i got is sweet. I love how it has a Mini-pcie slot and a CF reader on the back. I got a intel wireless card in the pcie slot so i can network while home, and i have a BLackberry that i'm gona use for a modem so i'll have roving internet.

        For a front end, i'm gona try to keep software cheep, so i'll do RoadRunner over windows xp. I was looking into LinuxICE, but sound card support for linux is kinda lax so who knows if i'll end up there, and i think i may have a "cheep/not so legal" copy of XP sitting around.

        I was reading a bunch of stuff about putting the OS on the CF drive, but i didn't know about the limited # of writes to a given bit on them which ends up making you use a special embedded version of windows. Boot times don't go down too much, and it just sounded like far too much hassle for little gain. I got a 8GB flash card for it on a whim, and now i got little to no clue as to what to do with it. *shrug*
