Thinking about a car pc for my soarer, any advice?
I've posted this over at soarer central but I thought you guys might be able to give me better advice about the specific components
The current head unit isn't good for much (no radio, mp3s, usb, or aux in, only normal cds)
So while I was looking for a new one i stumbled into a car pc thread, and now I'm fairly certain this is what I want.
I'm thinking this motherboard/cpu
Mp3 car gave it a pretty favourable review
Have any of you got any experience with this screen? Is there a better screen I've missed?

Is this where the power for the screen comes from?
I'm thinking I'll take the 60gb ssd out of my desktop and chuck windows 8 onto it (and use this as an excuse to upgrade the desktop to a 120:lol:)
I can't seem to find any slot loading sata dvd drives, is there any around?
I'd been planning on mounting it in the dash like walter did
But now I'm not sure, under a seat would be a lot more accessible, easier to install and probably get more airflow
Would it be possible to connect up my phone somehow and use the gps reciever in it? Its a desire hd. If not, something like this
From what I understand this won't be able to power the speakers/sub, so I'll need to buy an amp as well?
For a rear view camera I've found cheap ones on ebay like this one
How well do these work? Is it worth the extra money to get a good quality one
With one of these cameras I'll need a capture card like this?
Any advice about these components/car PCs in general would be much appreciated
