    For a vehicle, I think your processor choices will mostly be higher-power units.. Not what you want for a vehicle install.
    If you want bang-for-buck, I'ld look into an Intel "Little Valley" motherboard. They are sold int eh store here, as well as other locations.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    It all depends on what you want to do in your car..... With my first install I went with a VIA M10000. i wanted to use it for heavy video, MP3 and other uses. The board was terrible at video and caused alot of issues. So I decided to go with a Turion X2 64 bit processor and a KINO-690S1 board, which is over powered for the car, but i know it will be able to handle tons of stuff and not be obsolete so quick. My setup has alot of screens and tons of gadgets, I needed 17 USB ports, and have 5 free for future items.....

    The "Little Valley" is an awsome board. Fast (for carputer use), low power and cheap. Another interesting thing is it seems to boot much better in colder climates then my old MII 10000.

    Dont forget you will need some sort of power supply and heat/cold could be an issue, the little valley is a nice set up that resolves these issues if done correctly.
