Interested in why you're choosing to go with the i3. What are your goals of this car pc?
I am new to this and am looking forward to the project of installing a CarPC. If you could look at the list below and tell me if I am missing anything or simply have advice it would be greatly appreciated.
LIAN LI PC-Q09A Silver Aluminum Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 80W DC to DC converter&84W AC to DC Adapter Power Supply
OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD
4GB DDR3 Dual Channel RAM
Intel Core i3 CPU
GIGABYTE GA-H55N-USB3 LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
The main thing I am worried about is powering the unit. If there is any advice I would like to hear, it's about the power. I would rather have a working unit and not fried equipment.
Thanks in advanced!
I don't really have any goal's per say. I just like the idea of having a PC in the car and if I'm going to have one, it's going to be one that will run anything I throw at it at any one time.Interested in why you're choosing to go with the i3. What are your goals of this car pc?
being a new member, the faq's is a great place to look for answers-- it will answer a lot of common questions(like how to power it)
though, i am also interested in the response to sonic's question before commenting futher..
If you back down your stats it will be easier for you to source power supplies. I run a DSATX, but could step my entire setup down to an m2-atx if needed

I think I will go with a Core 2 Duo but like I stated before, my main concern is how to power it without blowing up any of the components. I guess I should just buy a case with out the power supply and get the PSU from mp3car.com?
