    Ideas for 2001 chevy impala

    I was hoping to be able to build a computer and use it to play music and dvd's in my car. I haven't had much experience in building computers, but i know most of the basic knowledge. I need help in deciding what parts to use because if i get the computer hooked up I would like to be able to upgrade it for more functions in the future, but I would like to make it a cheap project because my desktop computer in my house isn't very powerful and if i was to spend a lot of money on a computer in the car i might as well be using it for home and put my desktop from the house into my impala.

    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    ur gonna need either an inverter or a m2 atx power supply. and it depends how u plan on powering your computer. with an inverter you are gonna need a pretty big one. but if u get the m2 atx then its gonna be able to run u to 160w @12v
