  • A little help ^__^

    I been lurking here for a while but finally decided to post. Anyways I just wanted to make sure I am on the right track.

    I plan to acquire:

    -VIA EPIA Nehemiah M10000 - 1Ghz
    -OPUS PSU150
    -160GB Seagate 7200RPM
    -512MB PC2100 DDR DIMMs
    -Sony Slimline Combo CDRW/DVD Drive - Black
    -xenarc 7 inch touch screen
    -custom case
    -mouse/keyboard gyration

    Anything else that I am missing?
    Also, Its going to be hard to get the 7" installed so where would I find a good VGA 6.4" screen.

    Thanks ^__^

    I never understand why people need cdrws in their cars but if you do..great.
    And you may not need a mouse/keyboard (gyration), I hardly use a kb.

    dont forget the various cables, extenders, wires, switches, leds, and converters.
    Mine needs to be updated.

        Depends on where you want your stuff located. Say computer in trunk, LCD/etc in dash. You will need to run power cables from batter->Fuse->Trunk and then power to the LCD in dash from the OPUS, and VGA and USB to the dash.. That sort of thing

                        Hibernation is writing whatever is on the ram to the harddrive and then shutting down. Upon wake-up the info is written back to the ram and the pc continiuing with whatever programs where running. The more ram, the more to transfer to the hdd and back, equaling longer return and hibernation times.

                          Who needs hibernation when you have suspend? If you're going to not drive your car for a few days, shut it off. If you're going into the mall, put it in suspend...

                          Maybe it's just because I have an SUV but I've left the ITX system in suspend overnight and not killed my battery.

                              wha would be the time difference between hibernating a 256 and 512.
