    Need Help Building Carputer....

    Hey guys. Like the title says. I need help with building a carputer. This is going to be my first carputer. I am an installer now and was wondering if you guys could help me build my first carputer. Presently in my car is have:

    Alpine IVA-W505 /w Ipod Control & Ipod Video
    Alpine PDX4.150 4 Channel Amplifier
    Alpine 800 Watt Sub Amp
    Alpine Navigation
    Parrot CK3000 Bluetooth Kit

    Now i think thats all the information needed. I know that the IVA-W505 has Audio/Video Input. I know some carputers have a RCA Video Output to go into a tv screen. But will the touchscreen function of my existing radio work with the carputer. Also my main reason for wanting this carputer is because of the WiFi/At&t 3G Internet Card, music/movie storge (as I have lots of hard-drives with music and movies on them), and for solitaire (for car shows lol). So i was wondering if you guys could help me build a carputer for around $400-$500 dollars. Which I think is doable with the right assistance from you guys.

    Thanks In Advance
    Moe

    Not gonna happen. The touchscreen won't work with the computer.

    Also, RCA inputs will make the text look fuzzy.
