    Building my first carputer for my Transam need some advice.

    Hi Guys thanks for stopping in.

    Well finally after being a custom car stereo installer and having many gps aftermarket head units with gps Ive decided to do a more trick system in my old ride and bring it upto date. Ive started buying parts and need some clarification on things i dont quite understand yet.Here is what i have:

    Intel DG45FC mobo
    Intel E5300 2.6ghz dual core 2mb cache 800mhz fsb
    Kingston 2gb ddr2 sdram

    This is what I plan on getting still:
    Voompc-2 case
    m2-atx 160w power supply

    Also this is what i dont know for sure yet but with the specs given id like to add gps,wireless internet,backup camera and somehow a on/off and reset button if possible.
    Anyone have any ideas.its been a long time since i built a pc.Thanks in advance.

    The GPS, and wireless internet would be through USB..... backup camera would connect to what ever screen you plan to use. Reset button would come from the MoBo.... On'Off would go from the PSU to the MoBo, but you can also connect a power button to the cables. If I am not mistaken the M2-ATX has a jumper port on it to add a switch. I cant recall since I use OPUS.

    Ok that makes sense.Where would I find the power and reset buttons with the right connectors to plug onto the motherboard and relocate them onto my dash somewhere.I dont quite know the names of the certain plug ends I need.

    The switches connect to the motherboard using a jumper-style connection.
    You can wire up pretty much any switch to a lead.

    Another option is to scavenge power & reset switches from an unused PC case. They will already have the leads you need.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    this here's what you needs. MotherBoard header extensions http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=21385 or http://www.orbitmicro.com/global/sta...le-p-5688.html
    Cut off one of the ends and solder a longer wire to a button.
