    choosing the right equipment

    ey all,

    this is my first post, i have been in the computer industries for many years and have taken a brake, i have recently returned to the computer scene to find so many new types of hardware.

    just so i dont buy the wrong things, can you just check to make sure these are adequate,

    http://store.mp3car.com/VoomPC_2_Car..._p/enc-008.htm

    the car pc that im building is going to be running 1gb of ram, 100 - 200gb hdd, all in one motherboard, only used for music mainly and the odd 1 or 2 movies.

    thanks all.

    that is a pretty standard build. You should have troubles. Except you do know that the Voom case can only take 2.5" drives right?

    great, yeah im aware that it only takes laptop hard drives. is there any diss advantage to that, apart from the fact that there are not as many options in capacity as standard hdds

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