    Question

    Don't want to wait a week.

    What TV out are you using, at what resolution?

    The display seems clear (at least from the picture)

    lol, well I plan on working on the site tomorrow So it won't be a week.

    The screen is Part Express 5" taking apart and modified. Basically took the base off and turned it and stuck to the screen part.

    Cool

    Nice setup, but crappy car :-) Sorry, I just hate how those Z3s look...

    I see that you went with the Arise DC-DC. Do you have start up problems without the power good connection?

    Aaron Cake: About the car to each its own. I happen to like the look of the Z3 and its a blast to drive.

    I don't need the power good connection for
    my motherboard. I find that the Arise DC-DC PSU is pretty good. Runs cold, takes about 4.5 amp when running (I don't know about on startup how high it peaks I know it doesn't go past 10 amps) Well worth the money I spent on it.

    Hmmmm, 4.5A @ 12V. What hardware are you running? My inverter setup is WAY more efficient than that! I've got a Celeron 600II 20GB Hdd, DVD ROM, TV Tuner card, Radio Card, Ethernet, SB Live, and a 32MB video card, wireless keyboard, and UIR. My system only uses 4.02Amps. I would stay with an inverter if that's the case ps mine has no "Buzz" that you talk of either

    Just had to have a go at all you DCDC boys

    Note my 4.5 amp is just a guess I don't know for sure and don't really care to know. Also I run my LCD screen off the same power. I know that takes a good .75 amps right there. Also with the dc-dc psu I can include it in my box to take up less space in a car that doesn't have much to begin with.

    But to each his own you want to use an invertor fine I don't car its not my car or computer nor my money.
