    A little help ^__^

    I been lurking here for a while but finally decided to post. Anyways I just wanted to make sure I am on the right track.

    I plan to acquire:

    -VIA EPIA Nehemiah M10000 - 1Ghz
    -OPUS PSU150
    -160GB Seagate 7200RPM
    -512MB PC2100 DDR DIMMs
    -Sony Slimline Combo CDRW/DVD Drive - Black
    -xenarc 7 inch touch screen
    -custom case
    -mouse/keyboard gyration

    Anything else that I am missing?
    Also, Its going to be hard to get the 7" installed so where would I find a good VGA 6.4" screen.

    Thanks ^__^

    I never understand why people need cdrws in their cars but if you do..great.
    And you may not need a mouse/keyboard (gyration), I hardly use a kb.

    dont forget the various cables, extenders, wires, switches, leds, and converters.
    Mine needs to be updated.

    Depends on where you want your stuff located. Say computer in trunk, LCD/etc in dash. You will need to run power cables from batter->Fuse->Trunk and then power to the LCD in dash from the OPUS, and VGA and USB to the dash.. That sort of thing
