Thinking about building a carpc (planning stage)
Hey guys and gals, first post here. I have been looking at building a carpc for nav and media use. I currently have a desktop pc, (p4 northwood ~2ghz or so, 512mb ram, onboard graphics, on board sound or a creative audigy gold.) For power i have a 500-600watt ups and a 400 watt cobra inverter. The only part im really lacking is the touchscreen. I have been looking for a 7" touch screen that i can mount below my ac controls in my blazer.
My plan is to run power from the battery to the inverter then to the ups and finally to the pc. The biggest problem im facing is what to use for the hd. I build pcs and do pc repair but im not 100% if a laptop drive will stand up the the abuse of driving. If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
