    Quick question from a newbie

    hey guys.
    just about to start my CarPuter project.
    i have found a Mini-ITX motherboard but its only 800MHZ.
    just wondering if any1 knows how fast itll run with 2gig or ram and using TinyXP as the OS.
    BTW i dont need it to be extreamly fast, just dont want it to take 10min to turn on haha.
    thanks.

    If it is a C3, I would say 800mhz is cutting it close to unuseable, but they wouldnt sell it if it didnt work. I had a M10000 which is a C3 1Ghz and it was plenty speedy as long as you didnt push 3D rendering to it.

    Depending on what you want it to do, it will be overpowered, underpowered, or just right.

    I have run one with a 120mhz machine, a 233mhz machine, and a M10000 (equivalent of a 800mhz machine).
