    Sup yaa,

    This is some awesome stuff. Soon I will have my Carputer up and running.
    Just need to do more research. Still dabating on taking a desktop as a carputer or a mini itx. I want a clean install.

    Are you asking for advice? If so, search around.. there are many threads about mini-itx or full-sized desktop. It's really up to what you have room for and need.

      Welcome to the community.
      A few things, always do a search before posting, every idea you think you have has been posted. Support the site by buying components from the mp3car.com store on the homepage. Usually the best prices (at least in the US).

        Thanks for the info fellas. I have been using the search to get more ideas. Especially for a S10 install. Still debating my plan of attack for the best functionality. (not asking)

          I did the "rip apart the desktop" idea. It works. But if money's not an issue and you want a clean install, then go with the Mini ITX and a 12dc-dc PSU (OPUS). Don't use an inverter......they suck!

              They are expensive for the reason. You get what you paying for.
              Try it out and you will find out the reason why inverter suck.

                Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
                How about the Wiki?
