    Need Help Fast!!! Please respond

    I am thinking about buying a carpc for 400 and i need some opinoins on if its worth it and if the pc is quality.
    Computer Specs:

    Xenarc 700TSV - Black Enclosure (Was custom mounted outside enclosure, missing front buttons (xenarc replace cost $7) )

    C134 Mini-ITX Case - (Never saw car installation - NEW)

    60 GB HD

    512 MB Ram

    USB WiFi Adapter

    Via M10000 Mother Board

    XM Direct Universal Tuner

    USB GPS Adapter





    Cables:

    All cables are included + some. I am selling everything that was in the car as a group. This includes the VGA cable for the monitor, also a 6 foot extension for it, 15' RCA cables, DC Ground Loop Isolator, I-Plug (Head phone jack to RCA cable for discreet mounting), All power supplies (AC and DC) for the computer and TS.



    I also have an Opus PSU/ Start-Up controller that I can toss into this group for a major discount off of what I was asking for it.

    Price - 600!!

    i think its a good deal for a complete system. but that should take out alot of the fun of this hobby (o;'
    i didnt research it but i believe that you can get much newer and better performance hardware for this money if you get all the pieces seperatly... i am not sure about the monitor though, i am not familiar with xenarc at all.

    Yea thats a good deal, the monitor would make me a little nervous though. Usually you pay about 400 for just the monitor so I'm wondering why its such a good deal. That model of monitor is good, I'm just curious about that particular monitor.

    It's not that great a deal, IMHO. I've seen people try to soak people for more money, though.

    A Via M10000 motherboard is 5 year old tech and is slow as molasses compared to newer motherboards in the same formfactor such as those based on the Atom CPU.
    If you intend to do any audio processing on the PC, then you can forget the M10000. It doesn't provide enough processing power for such tasks.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    He is so right. My first Car PC was a M10000 also, and after 1 month I replaced it with the KINO-690S1 (which I am replacing now due to other issues). I would maybe buy the setup for everything else and trash the M10000. I had a USB Live 5.1 soundcard, and with the M10000, it constantly crashed.
