    first carputer, Acer Aspire x1200

    I am looking to do my first carputer, and I am trying to find a decent pc that will run all my needs... GPS, video, audio, phone controls. I don't understand processor speed, Ram speed, ect. I know what they do, but I don't know how big I need. Right now I am looking at an Acer Aspire X1200-U1640A. Specs are as follows:

    Processor Brand: AMD

    Processor Class: Athlon 64 X2

    Processor Number: 4400+

    Processor Speed: 2.30GHz

    Memory Type: DDR2

    Memory Size: 2.0GB

    Total Memory: 2.0GB

    Memory Speed: DDR2 800 (PC2-6400)

    Memory Slots (Total): 2

    Memory Slots (Available): 1

    Maximum Memory Supported: 4.0GB

    Interface: SATA II

    Capacity: 320GB

    Speed: 7,200RPM

    Interface: SATA

    If somebody could tell me if this would work for my application, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Pretty sure that should cover your needs and then some. I would however consider a dedicated sound card. And make sure you get a decent wattage power supply.
