    Why is that unprofessional?
    Anyway, you can still go with an USB or Firewire sound card too. (M-Audio FIREWIRE 410 for example)

    It's funny that you spending thousands of dollars on the sound system, hundreds on the
    PC upgrade instead of using linux and wine (I can run Igo8 with it), and trying to save money
    on the sound card.
    ReaRoute is same as ASIO4ALL, also Im try Jack too, but for both Im not shure if I do restart that I don't need clicking and setup things that audio will start again(So must be automatic setup settings without user action)... As Im say Im not shure if this can be done automatic because Im not spend too much time...

    USB soundcard is not option because have problems with sleep...

    IGo8 is very bad navigation for my country... Street which is old cca. 20-30year do not have ANY street number In our "town" we have more than 10 streets but none of this is not in list only main road street, Destinator with maps from 2007 have better map coverage than Igo8 which Im test in start of 2009... Best nav for my country is Garmin.

    I do not saving money on sound card.
    My Claro Halo XT cost 250USD
    same M-Audio Delta 1010LT which will replace Claro card cost cca. 250USD and have ALL what I need.

    Sorry but Im have Audison BitOne which is little better than PXA-H701 and Im put it out and sell it... You are very limited with settings... Only option will be PXA-H900 but cost more than my carpc

Not only do I have to replace the MoBo, Processor, but I also have to replace the soundcard, buy a serial to USB converter, buy a new DVD ROM, and change some wiring. I guess its safe to say that I am a perfectionist, even though I know there is no such thing as perfect, and I think _dejan_ is the same way. I just want to get as close as possible, even if it means spending alot more money. i want to evetually bring my cars to shows, so its very important to me.
    You are right.
    Also I must find MB which will work on our external temperatures: from cca. -20C to cca. 40C (external temperatures winter to summer)... Current board do not have problems when outside has been -13C...

    Thanks to everyone who are post links to motherboards I will in next days when I will have little more time check all pages and contact manufacturers about details...

    It was just an example, but you can make Garmin work on linux too (not too complicated)

    In car it can go up even to 50C, so be careful.

    Another solution to your problem:
    Use one simple PC just for audio processing, and another simple pc for the other stuff, and a KWM switch.
    Maybe sounds crazy, but it's a cheap and easy solution, and the other programs will not affect the sound
    quality. So, you only have to click one button to switch between Centrafuse, and a very
    basic windows or linux, with only sound processing and sound player apps running.
    Check my worklog:
    Corsa + Atom + Gentoo Linux + 9" capacitive touchscreen

    Lord of the boards: DFI CP100-NRM

    "Or you can try Ubuntu, but than don't tell everyone you are using linux,
    because it's just a secret unreleased prebeta of Windows 3829" :P

    Im think about this option too. To use One pc only for audio processing with MAC OS and connect it with optical cable, but there is then double space in boot for pc and more chance that something stop working...

    You can put the audio pc next to the amp, and the other into the dash or under seat.
    It's easier to debug audio problems, as no other apps will run on the pc.

    You can even forgot the KWM switch, and make network connection between the two PCs,
    run the audiopc without display (and save more system resources) but it's harder to setup and debug.

    Neither I. I prefer under seat placement, It's pretty cold here (well, in my car), I used to
    store mineral water there, and it was always cold (I don't have A/C, and summers are almost the same here).

    I think it's too processor-intensive and too general. But a small client-server app for only the
    settings will do the job. Depends on what settings you need to tune on-the-fly.
    Maybe you can write a dotNET or Linux app for it. Also, careful with the Mac
