hardware check before buying
I'm ready to order my equipment for the inital incarnation of my carpc and I just want to see if i'm overlooking something before I buy.
I want to run linux (linuxice probably) or xubuntu with nghost...something along those lines. I tried out an iso of linuxice on a laptop and it had a few issues. Which version is teh most stable/usable?
Atom 330, 2 gb ram, m2-atx, shuttle case, bu-353 (gps), kworld tv tuner card (already have it), dvd multidrive, 320 GB sata drive (already have it) and either the eby701 or 629 7" screen. I have both pci and usb wifi adapters available.
I already have a power distribution block and 4 amps and active XO installed so I'm hoping I just hook up the m2-atx like an amp - power, ground and remote turn-on.
Any opinions on which screen is better? I'm not looking for the super expensive sunlight readable screen at this point. I'll upgrade that later. I'm just trying to get started.
Thanks for any info/advice.
