  • Is this setup ok?

    Hi guys, new to the forum, I just registered. I love the idea of carputers and I think I will probably have as much fun installing and setting it up as I will using it.

    I love cars and computers, and after seeing some the projects you guys have done on here I can't wait to get started!

    Anyways, here's what I have planned so far, but anything can be changed if recommended, I do already have 2GB of 800MHz ram though, so I might as well use that for the memory.

    Touch Screen:

    Not sure, preferably 8" transflective


    Case:

    Not sure, possibly custom built, unless I can find a nice plain small one.


    Motherboard:

    Gigabyte GA-EG43M-S2H iG43 Socket 775 mATX

    Processor:

    Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2.8GHz Socket 775 1066MHz
    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/152177

    Memory:

    OCZ 2GB (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 Gold XTC Memory CL5

    Power Supply:

    Opus 360W

    Hard Drive:

    Western Digital 320GB 2.5" SATAII 5400rpm 8MB Cache

    DVD Drive:

    Samsung SE-T084M-RSWD

    Turbo Memory?

    Intel Turbo Memory 2GB

    I think the turbo memory may help with boot times, but I have no experience with turbo memory, it may not be that useful, but I figured it's worth a try right?

    I have attached a spreadsheet of the components, links and prices for my proposed setup.

    I would like someone to recommend me a touch screen, as I said, preferably transflective and 7" or 8" but aside from the screen please post any and all comments or suggestions you have.
