    CarPC = dead =(

    Well it happened today, well I really don't know when it happened cuase it would happen on and off...

    The PC didn't actually really die it was more the Hard Drives that died.. at least the one with the OS did.

    But I plan to upgrade to a Celeron 3.06 GHZ, 3200 DDR memory and hopefully I will find a board with either AGP support or S-Video out...

    Anyone want to suggest a good bundle or motherboard WITH AGP/S-video out, please do so.

    Thanks! I hope to get the repairs finished by next week so I can finished my Video system...

    Oh yea ill be powering the system with an M2-ATX power supply.

    These days I always buy two drives because one is always going to fail... (unless I get expensive ones w/5-yr warranties)
    However, buying used drives usually pays off. More expensive, but they have been proven to work and the bad ones have been weeded out.

    Yea I plan to buy an extra IDE and mirror all the settings and stuff on to it so if I do have that happen again, just plug it in and go.
