    that harddrive is probably going to give you problems

      I dont see why the hard drive would give you problems. I've beeen running a 45 gb 7200 rpm harddrive for over a year without a problem. Developer (I am Chuck)

        You think because of the speed or the capacity? I believe it will run a little slower due to its massive size but I think the processor and ram should all keep up.

          I don't know that much about hard drives, but I would have figured with such a large hard drive, all the data being so damn packed together, bad writes may be more common in a harsh environment (like a car).

          That's just a guess though.

            What is the Car alarm (Clifford 3.5) going to hooked to? Are you intergrating it into your setup?

            Just curious as I have the 3.5 also..

              Nice car...

                its gonna be just tied into the car as of now, including the built in turbo timer. Maybe cameras in the future?

                  Epia M10000 doesn't have a AGP port, so can't put a Radeon 9800 Pro in there.

                  Either get yourself a faster motherboard/processor combo, and keep the 9800 Pro (which is way overpowered for any CarPC IMO), or get yourself a Xenarc display (which will give you more satisfaction than a rediculously fast graphics card)

                    that clifford matrix, just like my clifford arrow, has G4 so you can tie the alarm into a serial port. i plan to do that with my alarm and carpc as well.
