Please correct me please if I'm screwing this up big time:

Chipsets Intel 845GV
Memory 2x 184 pin DDR
Expansion Slot 3x PCI slot
Graphics Intel 845GV Integrated

Back Panel 1x LPT
Dimension 325 x 100 x 370 mm
I will add 1 stick of 256 ram and a 40G western digital hard drive and a dvd player.
I was going to run a 400W 2 plug inverter to run my components I plan to install the PC in the trunk and hook the audio through the OEM CD changer plug in the back I am told there is an adapter that mates with the OEM plug and and in a headphone type jack.
The LCD I want to use is a Lilliput 7in TFT touch screen but I don't want and indash install I want to make a custom swing arm that I can hide the monitor away if I'm not going to use it. I want to keep my oem stereo
The install is going to be in an audi a4 anybody see some pitfalls so far for me? Any help provided would be greatly appeciated.
What do you need such a powerful computer for?
What are you going to manufacture your custom swing arm out of?
I don't know anything about Audi's but if you can buy an Auxil. In for the OEM radio I'll be surprised...stranger things have happened, though, so you're probably right, if you heard it from a reputible source.
Welcome to the board and good luck!
Well the pc is cheap it's a bare bones system for 117 bucks
Thanks for the welcome and the advise
