    Looks pretty good to me. Mind if I ask where you are getting your 5.6" LCD? That's a pretty decent price.

    Im gonna get one off of Ebay for that much.
    Most of the 5.6's are going for less than that and I haven't seen many go over so thats why i put that price. Most likely gonna be an Mobile Authority.

    6.4 GB is kinda small... I've got about 12 GB of mp3's right now (~175 cd's)

    about the size of hard drive.....

    has anyone noticed this before, I have a 40 gig in my car and well i was just trying to fill it with mp3's. I borrowed friends collections of cds and i even went to the local library and borrowed around 25 cds a week to rip out. Now i have almost too many mp3's ... sounds odd but ya i do, i mean its not like im gonna listhen to 10 different versions of bethovens 9th.. I guess i just got addicted to it.

    So has this happened to anyone else where you realize that you have so many mp3's that you will never listhen to? I mean it just sounds like a waste.

    By the way my car computers collection is up to around 400-500 albums....

    (i forgot to say... sometimes i wish i had a smaller hard drive so it would force me to restrict myself on what i put on the system) although i agree 6 gig is too small

    well i currently only have 2.09 GB of MP3s. Since 1998. of course i have recently got the cable internet which has made a big difference. And I am sure I will upgrade to a bigger HD in the future. I just wanna get my system in and working then i will upgrade when i get the extra money.

    I have been putting my mp3 collections on CD (you know like a hundred songs perdisk)

    Because I am afraid my collection will be lost do to a HD crash and I will have to start over...about 15 minutes per CD takes a while.

    If you already have the hardware, start building. But if you are going to buy the parts, think of the following:

    - A P133 running win95+winamp with 16Mb RAM is ok. More RAM and processor speed is overkill if it's only used as Mp3-player.

    - A would put the money for a bigger harddrive + a nice soundcard.

    - Dont forget how to get your mp3-cd's into the harddrive. Are you going to attach a monitor and keyboard everytime you have to download? A 100Mps network card could be an easy way. Cheap to.
