    Parts LIst for mini PC

    I need the parts and price list for a mini pc I have searched for a little bit and found some great info but I would like someone to help me out I will be willing to spend about $400 for the puter but $200 would be great also. And even if ya can't put one together for $400 just gimme the cheapest one you can get. I did build my own desktop but I have no experience with mini parts, also anyone ever measure the voltage on the 1/8" - RCA wires?

    If you would be willing to use the 533 MHz eden cpu on the EPIA-5000 there is a guy on ebay who sells them for $49 US or lower. He lives in germany but ships them for a reasonable price. His ebay name is highquality48. It feels good cutting the retail price almost in half .

    you need
    case
    memory
    hard drive
    power supply
    input device
    screen
    mobo which typcally has lan, audio, video on it.

    honestly you will build a POS for $400
    Mine needs to be updated.

    so would it be better to build a regular sized pc instead of a mini, and why do you say it will be a POS what part in building a mini $400 pc is bad, CPU, ram, mobo, or do I need to spend more money?

    There was nothing I could see in samc's reply which said "regular sized PC". That was simply a list of the bits you need to build any computer, big or small. My system has all those components:

    case : Cut down aluminium box from maplin, size 8.5"x6"x2"
    memory : 128Mb EDO (2x64Mb SIMMs)
    hard drive : 6.5Gb laptop drive
    power supply : ISR based homebuilt DC to DC supply
    input device : UIR with VCR remote control
    screen : 4x20 character VFD
    mobo which typcally has lan, audio, video on it. : EM586

    You'll also need a processor. Mine has a P233 MMX.

    Yes it would be a POS by desktop gaming rig etc. standards but its a freakin carputer that plays music!!! Also, In my opinion you mineaswell just build a custom box or simply mount your mobo to a safe, secure location in your car. Finally, I think the Epias are great for in car use just give them a display and a dc-dc power supply and they keep going and going and going......
