    Is a k6-2 350 enough power for a car PC?

    I may get a deal on one soon and want to know if it is worth the trouble?

    Easily, depending on what you want to do with it. I run a P233 MMX clocked back to 210 MHz, and I have about 4 times as much power as I need.

    Rob is right. If you're just planning on playing MP3s, 350MHz is more than plenty. If you want DVD playback, as long as you have a suitable video card, 350MHz is still enough.
    - Sony XAV-7W In-Dash 7" LCD
    - Via EPIA 800MHz
    - 256MB SDRAM
    - 40GB HDD
    - Targus Wireless Remote
    - Win 98SE

    210/4 = 52.5

    I tried mpxp on a 66 486 with math co-processor, And id didn't quite cut it, but I have never had an trouble with mp3's on Pentium/586 90's

    The 350 will **** it in.
    /me recomends HD bigger than 4 gig. *suggests at least 10*

    mine's PII 300MHz underclocked to 233MHz so that i can juice in more power to other peripherals. my TV has it's own video card as well as my VCD... if your planning to have full screen Vizualization on WinAmp then it is quite underpower, it really depends on what you want to achieve...

    I am planning on a 7" touchscreen since it would be such a cool way to control everything. But I may just make a cheapo system for MP3 to get my feet wet and then upgrade from there. I would like full screen WinAmp of course, I figure for all the trouble it may as well look cool.
