  • Help finalize my "to-buy" list please...

    Hey all...
    I'm hoping to buy everything that I need soon.. and would like to know if i'm missing anything that i will be needing...

    thanks..

    -Xenarc 700TS - http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...products_id=49
    -USB repeaters + cables
    -Will be making my own long VGA cable

    -Mp3Car DSATX 220 Watt PSU - http://www.mp3car.com/store/product_...roducts_id=146
    (I'm not sure about needing any startup/shutdown modules.. do i need em?)

    -Lanzer 4channel 1000W Amplifier

    -I already have a computer, so i'll just be replacing the DSATX into that.

    After months on reading on this website, this list seems too short! lol...
    I'm looking for a very simple setup, plain and simple!

    Is there anything else I will be needing for my carpc project?

    [I have excluded small things such as wires (to battery), fuses etc... which I will probably be purchasing from the local stores.

    Please let me know if i'm missing anythhing..

    thanks to all.

      No.

      As someone else asked: Specs?!?!?!

      Is there anything else I will be needing for my carpc project?
      Of course there is. You'll find out what you need along the way, I'm certain.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?



      Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

            how are the slim cd-roms connected next to the screen while the cpu is in the back? they use ide cables right?!?!

              cd-roms you can connect via USB, mount them in glove compartment or something. I am planning to try mounting mine in glove compartment.
