As a total newbie I would like to build a PC that will run CF3 efficently (quick startup, no lags, good performance) and would like to also use my nokia n95 handsfree through CF3.
I have space for a double DIN touchscreen display with space behind after taking out factory audio system (CD/tape/radio).
I was originally thinking of using this space for the entire PC, however I have noticed in some threads that nano-ITX systems can cause CF3 to be slow, which something I don't want. I do have room in the back of the car for a larger enclosure and could run leads for screen and USB's to the front. I would like it if the PC was still easy to unhook and take inside when necessary.
Parts I have decided on are;
- joycon steering wheel RC
- Globalsat BU-353 GPS
- HQCTi radio reciever
- Centrafuse 3
Parts I need advice on (most of it) are;
- bluetooth adapter
- power supply
- Windows (XP? or 7?)
- microphone (for handsfree only)
- OBD-II scanner (if budget allows!)
- SSD HDD
- USB hub
- amp (as small as possible; using factory speakers)
Thanks in advance for any advice.
p.s. any australian-specific tips are much appreciated
