  • help picking a carpc

    hi everyone,

    there is too many choices and variations for a PC, so I was hoping I can get assistance with narrowing down the options with a recommendation.
    I have the screen, I need to build the PC , I need:
    - preferably nvidia next gen ION
    - dual core
    - wifi (if not, I can always buy the dongle)
    - around the US$300-US$450
    - dont care if it is fanless or not
    - minimum 4 USB ports

    I am happy to have a already-built unit like the zotac zbox familly, or to build it from parts.
    don't care about brands either, Intel, AMD, etc...

    IF you need more info, just ask

    much appreciated.

    forgot to say, 2GB ddr3 ram minimum
    100+GB HDD

    eventually I will have voice activated actions, OBII connection and 2 slave screens for the back seats.

      any of the Nvidia ION boards should be able to do 2 screens. You won't be able to do 3 unless you add a second card afaik. They also have plenty of USB ports.

      This one is a dual core Atom classic:

      This one is pinetrail based:

      You probably won't benifit at all from the pinetrail atom since you won't be using the on-die GPU. I'd go with the 330 (which is what I did, and I love me that first board).
