    PCI card suggestions?

    i think I'm going to ditchmy PCI radio/tv tuner.

    Any suggestions for what to put in its place? I've already got wi-fi and bluetooth setup.

    Should I go with a PCI video card to drive my Xenarc rather than the built in VGA?

    Maybe a contact closure board to use switches and relays to control other fun stuff in the car? I have been thinking about installing motors in the sideview mirrors so I can pull them in with a flick of the switch.

    Thoughts?

    PS - Info about the rig coming as soon as I get the monitor mounted correctly...

    what contact closure board do you have in mind..i never heard of them before, they sound interesting.

    I wouldnt go for a pci video card unless you wanted to run at 800x480 (however certain via boards are able to run them also).
    I wish i knew how to do fiberglass work...

    the onboard video should be fine for what we use these things for. how about a high end audio card or a wifi card?

    Do you have a PCI sound card? If you have any audio issues using onboard sound, I'd definitely think of buying a good quality PCI sound card - cleared up a ton of audio related issues for me.
