  • Finally want this project on its legs- please advice

    Iv been doing my researching around this great website and been looking at members posts and reading thier setup/experience/and suggestions and I think I've done enough reading to finally post for advice to get my carpc from my head into my jeep

    This is my setup I have been looking at while bored at work...

    Mobo/CPU - Intel BOXD525MW Intel Atom D525@ 1.8GHz (Dual Core) BGA559 Intel NM10 Mini ITX

    Case - Rosewill R379-M 0.8mm SGCC Steel Slim MicroATX Case with ATX12V Flex 300W Power Supply

    Ram - just 2gb since iv heard the more it has the slower the wake up

    SSD - 32GB OCZ Core Series SSD

    Gps - bu353 reciever

    Bluetooth - ASUS USB-BT211 USB 2.0 Mini Bluetooth Dongle

    WIFI - EDIMAX EW-7811Un USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter

    monitor I have been seeing that mp3car now offers a kit for the Jeep WK so im still deciding on that

    Suggestion: DC-DC power supply
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      A lot of people seem to like the GM-2 5hz GPS receiver; I present it only as an option - http://www.semsons.com/igmusbgpsre6.html - also for sale on ebay for a similar price.

      Depending on the size of your music/video collection you plan on adding to the SSD, 32gb may not be enough. SSDs are rumored to not do well near full capacity. This link has some good info: http://club.myce.com/f138/consequenc...pacity-316546/

        Im looking at PSU and im trying to figure either to go with Mx-atx [either M2 or m4 which is better? ]
        or OPUS [ OPUS 120W Intelligent DC-DC PSU ] will 120w be enough?

        Oh really? I didnt know that, thanks for the info.. time for a bigger SSD then. Most likely just a OCZ 80gb so I can still keep a low budget ha

          Im bored at work again and I was looking around the site and I noticed the AMD Zacate. Does anyone have some exp. with the GIGABYTE or ASROCK mobo that contains the zacate? and will those motherboards still be compatible with my setup?

            I just picked up the M4-ATX and love it. The board works perfectly.

            I haven't set up the USB adapter to it yet, but I'm running it in P1 Mode and it has worked great for my set up.
