    Wal-mart has a Duron 1.3Ghz PC that goes for $400. Check with your local computer shops. They usually have good deals on computers.

    Also, try to find a used computer shop.

    Just try to find an used computer. I have an old Pentium1 mainboard with vga and sb16 onboard. An Intel CPU of 133MHz is enough for mp3, but a 166 or higher can decrease startup time.

    If you search good, the system only could cost lower than $100.

    What do you want the PC to do? Are you just looking to play MP3, or do you want to do other stuff too (DVD, GPS, etc). How much time to do want to devote to the project? Are you happy just putting a tower in the trunk of the car or do you want to customize your setup?
    You mentioned you're looking to spend $300, so right now you might have a simple setup that just plays MP3s, but leave yourself room to grow down the road. Get an idea of what your ultimate car PC would be, then slowly build towards that goal.
    Post some more info about your goals for this project.
