  • 2004 Mazda RX8

    Hi new here and to carpcs. I own a Mazda RX8 and do have some experience with computers.
    I am planning to build a carpc for music, movies, gps, internet, light gaming, OBD, reverse camera etc.
    Here is my proposed setup:
    Intel Pentium G2020
    ASRock H61M-ITX Motherboard
    4gb DDDR3
    M4 PSU
    Custom case
    1tb HDD (already have a spare one)
    Mo Co So double din capacitive touch screen
    Windows 8

    I had a few questions though.
    What is good/bad about this setup?
    Capacitive or resistive? I understand the difference but is it worth the extra for capacitive? Mainly worried about swiping and scrolling through things. But its a huge extra cost. Has anyone figured out how to steal a tablet screen yet? Ipad screens and touch overlays can be brought for a lot less than capacitive screens and are much nicer.
    Are there any good plans for a DIY PSU? I work at Jaycar so if its worth it I'd like to build the PSU myself. I would like to get some more experience with electronics and save money.
    Thanks for any help.
