bad thing could turn good
Well i got in an accident on july 3rd. Someone was following way too close, and going too fast while a truck was infront of me. The truck suddenly stopped, so i had to stop kinda fast and these group of teenagers plowed into me going about 35mph. Their car was totalled- airbags deployed, egine on the ground leaking fluids, just totaly gone. My car (2000 honda ccord coupe) got some minor/moderate damage on the bumper so im going to use some of the insurance money to get a kick *** computer/audio setup after i fix my bumper. Might do some stuff to my engine with the left over money too. Bad thing is im going to have to drive my ford escourt while my car is in the shop getting fixed.
So yeah, im thinking of getting this:
I have a AMD 2.5ghz pc running on a nforce2 mobo with 512mb ram and a built in gf4mx/5.1 soundstorm that does hardware audio effects ect. But i might get a new sound car to avoid engine noise. Has a 40gig hd, and dvdrw/cdrw drives, but i think i need to buy a slim one for mounting somewhere inside the car. Im not sure what route i should go for interfacing with the computer besides touchscreen, since that can be slow. I was going to try to some how get stearing wheel buttons that interface with either the computer or headunit.
Thinking of getting a 7in (or 10 if i can fit it somewhere) screen with touchscreen overlay.
Headunit for radio?
Then for speakers, im not really sure. Was thinking of getting 2 12's then mount them backwards like all the kids are doing :lol: . Throw a amp in the back on top of that, and ill be nice. But i was also thinking of going with some small Bose speakers because they sound so clean and clear plus they got a *lil* base.
Then im going to redo my seats. I can get Louise Vitohn material for retail, and i was thinking of getting my seats redone in them. Or any other brand if i can find a good looking one soon (anything that goes with a leather brown, white or black)
I also have a broken ps2 (broken fan and cdrom) that i was thinking about getting fixed. And if i do, there is a ps2 version of gameXcopy that formats any 50gig or bigger pc harddrive to ps2 format, and copies any ps2 game to the ps2 hd, and loads the games 70% faster. So if i ever get it fixed, ill buy a new hd and a couple of cheap tv's an throw them in the back seats. Might get a gamecube too, since they're only 70bux used.
Think thats about everything...shouldnt cost that much i dont think:
300watt inverter $ 60?
slim DVD drive $ 100? (might not need this, just rip everything to hd instead)
Screen(s) w/ touchscreen 2x cheap ones for backseat $100, TFT $200-$250
GPS $ ?? (might not need this for awhile too)
So im looking at about.... $680-$800
Edit: is this monitor good? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...908857184&rd=1 It says its 400nits, not sure if thats correct or not.
