    wow, are you building a carpc or home theater pc?
    Unless you have specific reason to use that "higher end" and power hungry component, I'd say stay with the mini-itx.

      What's the point in 2Gb of Ram and 3Ghz dual-core processor outputting to a 7" screen in a loud rattly vehicle? all it'll lead to is mega stress in case it gets stolen, more headaches as you try and get it all configured without overheating in a contained rugged vibrating harsh environment, and the increased fuel cost of making your alternator crank up a 320W PSU on top of all your car's vital electrical systems.

      Unless you're building a show car with six plasma TVs and NASA shuttle communication capabilities, scale your system back about seven billion percent. You'll be thankful for the simplicity when it inevitably goes wrong.

        This sure is an overkill for a CarPC...

        If you still want all those horsepower, I'd suggest an SSD (16 or 32 G) for the OS and conventional HDD (preferably 2.5" and shock mounted)for the media.

        My suggestion is go with a decent mini-itx board and save yourself some greenies...

          Thanks for the input, back to the drawing board. where would be a good place (not foogle) to look for a mini?

                Ok here is a new question on audio, How do you get full around, with only one out. If there is any thing i am OCD is my audio if it is not right it drives me nutz i need the balance back to front and left to right. I know i need amps and the setup i am putting in that is not a problem. but how do yall balance with no HU?

                  I know centrafuse has a mixer which comes in handy sometimes. Not sure if Road Runner does but I assume is has something similar.

                  Heres what you could do, i told someone else on another post this. Buy a cheap head unit on ebay or craigslist that has an auxiliary input and then just hide it somewhere. I have mine under my dash resting on my chassis and i can still get to it with my remote.

                    Yah that would work, wanted to throw a HU out all together but if it has to be done.

                      If you still want power, but minus the desktop setup, then go with mobile components. Yea its more pricey, but you wont have to worry about powering it. A OPUS 320 will work fine. I built my setup for high multimedia use. 4 screens, etc.....
