    If only everthing in life would do what I WANTED it to, rather than what it was SUPPOSED to do.

    ing is a general suggestion. Most people cannot help those who dont know what they want. If you read most of the FAQ's you will find a general list of the things you will need. Since you have a desire to build a Carpc, you must have a general idea of what you need. If you read the phases of those who have assembled you will find examples of what has been done in the past. If you have questions of how they did what they have, specific topics (ie: dash fabrication, pc mount, pc acessories, stereo connections, or other simple topics). If you know nothing start with the newbie section and finger through a few threads. Just general advice, but your ability to read and think for yourself will help the most IMO. GL
