Thinking for a better system.. Help needed!
After a operating system reinstall my system started to go slow. :censored:
Everything seems to be ok now and all is working well but I feel it slow!
Ok, it was not a flash of lightning and I was already thinking to change it with a better one because of processor speed and the integrated graphic card that is really poor! :mmph:
Just to summarize, this is my actual system: :typing:
MB Jetway Hybrid J7F2WE1G2E with
integrated VIA C7 1.2GHz Fanless Processor,
512MB RAM (64MB shared for video),
80GB 2,5" SATA Western Digital HDD,
M2-ATX Intelligent Car PC DC-DC Power Supply,
ELM327 OBD2 interface,
USB GPS receiver,
silabs usb radio and
CD/DVD slot-in slim recorder.
The HDD contains a 60GB partition completely full of mp3 and a 20GB system/programs partition.
I'm using Roadrunner as frontend with crystalblue skin.
I was never able to run flash skins like freedom ultimate :eek: and I had to remove the flash spinning logo / timer from the crystalblue skin because of video/processor speed problems banghead.
I cannot run any game because of limited cpu/video resources :mad: and I never saw rrearth running decently; it works but in an unusable way! :noidea:
Apart from that, I can listen mp3 music, the radio (very poor reception if compared to the original HU with the same antenna), see videos and dvd (with a lot of adjustements to the quality settings..).
I was never able to have a phone interface running properly because, I think, of my bluetooth interface that I buyed on ebay with poor or no confidence with bluetooth interfaces. :doh:
After the new install, I have a lot of delays in RR also if only change from one page to another :rant:.
When I press the button to leave RR I have to wait also 30 seconds before I can see the confirm exit page and when I go to playlist to choose another album to play, it takes forever! :clock:
Ok, I simply have to do some adjustement on my system; I have something wrong but... I decided to change my system at all!!
So, I need your help! :nw:
I'd like to do the things I described above with no problems, running flash skins and animations, some game, have a quick and responsive interface also if I'll have a 250GB full of mp3, instead of 60GB!
Just to give you an idea I'd like to play games like nfs most wanted or something like unreal tournament also with low resolution (640x480), I don't care; my home pc with integrated intel 945G runs these games smootly even if it isn't the best of quality!
Obviously, I have powering problems because of a little car (P206 you can see in my avatar) and I'd like to listen music or watch movies for some hour when parked with engine off without drain my battery!
So I need a powerful system but with no more power that I need :nutz:
I think I'll need a new dc/dc converter with more power and I was thinking on a core duo system :buddy: but really... I don't know!
I don't wanna repeat my previous error, buying something that doesn't match my needs! :help:
So, thinking more concretely, I'm looking for a mini-itx (for room problems) possibly fanless MB, a good and fast (but power friendly!) CPU with a proper dc/dc converter, a decent integrated video card, an integrated audio card with at least 4 audio channels and a lot of usb (6 at least, better if 8!).
I need suggestion guys!! :ranger:
I think there's a wide variety of carpc here with different performances so please let me buy the right system!
Many thanks in advance to all :hippie:
