Its been a while! I need a few suggestions.
Hey all. It has been a few years now since I installed my carpc, my car has been sitting unused for about 2 years now and for some reason the carpc is dead! Anyways this is a good chance to update the carpc since I will be driving my car again.
My carpc is an atom dual core board(dead), m2 atx(dead) and a laptop hard drive with a liliput VGA screen. I think I was running centrafuse 2 and the pc took about a minute to start up on XPlite. I am looking to replace everything except the screen.
I dont want an expensive build, I just need it running how it was before I stopped driving the car except I wouldnt mind a faster boot time.
Which power supply? I need this to turn my amps on too.
Which motherboard? I need audio outputs for front, rear and sub. Needs VGA output for the screen
Which hard drive? Is SSD suitable?
Which software? Windows 7? Are people still using centrafuse or is there something better?
Bluetooth would be nice but I can always add it on later.
I never found a decent solution for FM radio, but now we have DAB+ here, is there any plug in and play solution?
