  • 2007 Nissan Xterra: Proposed Build

    Right now I am deployed to Afghanistan and have a lot of free time on my hands. I thought why not build a PC for the car. I've been wanting to do this for a while now, but never had the time or resources. Here is my proposed build. Would love some feedback as I am completely new to this. Thanks and God bless!

    Enclosure: LinITX CarPC Chassis
    Motherboard/CPU: Intel BOXD510MO Intel Atom Mini-ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
    Memory: All Components 4GB 240 Pin DDR2 800
    HDD: Saegate Barracuda LP 2TB 3.5" Hard Drive
    Power Supply: M3-ATX-HV 6V-34V 95W Intel Car PSU
    Display: LinITX Plus 7" Widescreen VGA/Composite Monitor with Touchscreen
    Opitcal Drive: USB 2.0 DVD-RW Drive Liteon SOSW-833S
    GPS: GlobalSat BR353 USB GPS Receiver SiRF Star III
    Satellite Radio: XM Direct Satellite Radio Module w/ Interface Cable
    Wireless: Engenius EUB-9707 Mini 11n USB Dongle
    OBD-II Scanning: ?
    Bluetooth: Dynamode USB Micro Bluetooth Adapter-100M Range
    Front End: Centrafuse Auto
    Operating System: Windows 7
    On-Screen Navigation: Mini Wireless RF Keyboard & Touchpad

    Again, I am new to this, so anything I am missing or any suggestions on how to improve this system would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!! :-)

    looks like a pretty standard setup..

    i have read many times that with centrafuse, atom boards are very slow, and many stepup to at least a i3/pentium/etc. to get a snappy interface.

    if you were to do this, the m3 power supply would not work very well..


    also, that case will not fit a 3.5" hdd, you would need to use a 2.5" drive.

        I see you have questioned OBD2.

        This seems to be pretty much the standard for OBD2 for most people/vehicles:

              4gb is a lot of memory-- in most cases, 2gb is plenty. if you are going to hibernate, the less memory the faster the pc will hibernate..

                The board description said that Vista was the latest OS that I could run on it.

                  according to intel's site, it just says that the board fully supports the vista Aero theme-- so win 7 will be fine..
