    I'm going to run a USB 802.11g access point (Not the really small pendrive ones) from the back of my Mini-ITX case (mounted where my head unit was) up through my dash, mounted at the top, and the same for my GPS reciever.
    Quick! To the Popemobile!

    I am using a MB with integrated vid and sound, it meets my needs, I am not using and PCI devices.

    Plan out what you want the PC to do, that should answer your question for you.

    well... that's the thing... i'm just trying to plan ahead... maybe there's something i want my PC to do that i haven't thought about yet that will require more than 1 PCI.

    On-board video and audio, DVD through USB, GPS through USB, TS through USB, an that leaves me with a firewire, and 1 more USB (which i plan to use a USB hub on for data transfer). The MII board actually comes with a laptop style card slot... in which i'll be using for a wireless card. Sound will connect through aux input of a HU i have yet to purchase, and thats pretty much it.
