I have been in the building stage for my CarPuter for a few years now... I purchased an ASUS CUSI-FX Mini-ATX motherboard about 2 years ago and last year upgraded the processor to a 1GHz Via C3 Ezra with a 100MHz FSB. The system was supposed to go in my vehicle, but got pulled in to doing the job of our router... after upgrading to a new router I got the computer back, but here is the question. Do I use it as a CarPuter, even though its slightly outdated? (Its FSB is 100MHz) or do I upgrade to the VIA EPIA M10000 Mini-ITX Mainboard? The real dilemma is I don't know how much of a performance increase I would get for dropping $200cdn on a new motherboard and processor. Has anyone done any upgrade similar, or should I stick to the CUSI-FX for another year and buy a new system when Via or someone similar releases something better? here are the specs on the CUSI-FX http://www.baber.com/baber/411/asuscusi-fx.htm
Any help would be appreciated.
