    Yeah shuttle would be good. I am thinking i might make a small case that is carpteted except for a small plexi window with a UV light or summit in (just cos my home PC is a boring beige box with an old P3 in and my car pc will be 3 times as fast - summit wrong there!!!!)

    So, i looked at some shuttles....waaay too expensive. There's gotta be a no name brand or somethin? Also, im assumin the mini mobos n everything is gonna cost so much more, so im tryint o decide if i should even attempt getting a mini pc? anyone have any better ideas. I know so many of you have done so much neat stuff with your computer and slipped em in wierd places. i just want somethin that doesn't look douchey as hell in my trunk.

    Maybee go with a cheep used laptop off of Ebay. I'm running a cheep p4 2g, laptop and I love it, if you go mobo, you should really consider going mini itx, you'll really want it later, they are so small and open up a lot of possibilities, they are also expensive however.

    Epia makes some tiny boards. Search around and you may find some people on here that use them.

    I wouldn't get a SiS or VIA chipset. Those are the low cost/budget ones that lack quality/performance IMO. For AMD go with nVidia chipsets. For Intel, go with Intel chipsets. Less problems, especially for a proclaimed n00d
