Newbie looking to CarPC '94 MR2
I found an old desktop lieing around in the attic the other day, completely forgotten about it until I saw it. I thought maybe I could build this up to be a CarPC even if it is a little on the large side, I've already made up a panel to attach the motherboard to the car through though I still need to sort out enclosure.
I just need some advice to know if my bits are good enough and also what and where to get some new bits.
Motherboard – P4M-915G/PDi
Processor – Intel Pentium 4 3.00gHz
Graphics Card – Asus EAX1600pro
Sound Card – Onboard (Amplifier Compatible one required)
WLAN & Bluetooth Card – None (Required for Wifi)
RAM – 1GB DDR 400mhz (Planning on 3 more)
DVB Card - AverTV DVB-T 771 (Good for DAB)
HDD – None (Can easily “borrow” one from my other PCs or buy a slimline)
ODD – None (Have 2 spare and can also buy a slimline if required)
Now my gfx card takes up the only PCIe slot so I need to find a way to get a WLAN card in there, any ideas?
Are slimline better than normal with regards to vibration protection?
How do I get the sound working through the PC?
What psu do I need for this? Also will I need an adaptor or is it all done through the converter?
That's all the questions I can think of at the moment, please do take mercy on me, I tried searching but came up with zilch really.
Thanks in advance, much appreciated to any answers.
