    What To Buy

    Right im going to buy a shell and build my own carpc system it needs to be small as its going in a mini.
    So what am i buying
    I want to have it so it plays mp3's,Can copy cd's and can use a couple of applications.
    Im going to have a ps2 so it can do the dvd part.
    The budget is quite tight around 100 pound probably buy the partd from ebay.
    Thanks in advance MiniManShane

    100 pounds = US$175.25 (as of 7/21/2005).
    Unless you've got spare parts lying around withwhich to build your vehicle computer, good luck. This is not a budget hobby in any shape or form.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    see how much you can get a screen for and work it out from there, its probably the most expensive single item.

    I guess this would be considered a "common" starting point:

    MP3Car Custom Car Computer (3688)
    - Motherboard VIA VIA EPIA M10000 Mini-ITX Mainboard
    - Hard Drive 2.5" Hard Drive 60GB Samsung 5400rpm
    - CD/DVD Drive Panasonic Slot Load DVD-ROM/CD-RW Combo Drive 24x24x24
    - Memory Ultra Low Profile 512MB DDR RAM

    Subtotal: $651.00
    (This does not include any of the incidentals like OS, adaptors, cables, etc)
