    currently:

    Celeron 366
    tnt2 Vanta Video
    128mb sdram
    maxtor 15gb hard drive
    Windows XP Pro
    Soundblaster 128
    10.4" In-dash touchscreen (screen is sharp lq10d421)
    CIMR media remote

    Next step is Epia M system when I catch up on my credit cards

    edit: power is absolutely not the most important part of a carputer, I think clean installation and functionality is far more important

    with power you get size. I'm running a duron 800mhz and I want to go with a epia which is less power but a smaller footprint. As long as it'll run dvd fine I'm happy

    yea im using a AMD duron 1.3 ghz on a biostar mvig-pro mobo with 256 pc2700 ddr corsair (it was cheap lol) and a seagate barracudda IV 40giger lying around in an aluminum case and it has only overheated a couple times (my car sits in the FL sun all day) but the mobo shuts the comp down when core temps reach 75C

    here's a link to my setup http://www.protege5.com/vbb230/showt...light=carputer
