    Question Newbie looking for advise.

    Ok the read the FAQ and that was helpful also found some other links but still looking for some direct info.

    First the background. I am Very computer literate, familiar with the basics of electronics, pretty good with car audio and cars in general. Not my first custom system in a car or even computer in a car but it is my first custom built computer in a car.

    Specifically I am looking for good links for sourcing the parts. Additionally I am looking for recomendations for motherboards I already got the idea that Opus is the only way to go for power supplies so all good there.

    Details for the motherboard. Small obviously, built in video and audio 5.1 or better would be preferable. Would like more than one PCI slot, one DIMM is ok at least 2 USB and one LAN. Would like onboard bluetooth, Wireless and firewire if possible (in that order).

    Also looking for a place to get a slot load dvd that is good with vibration and would like some advise on cooling is this a big problem?

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    One of the Mini-ITX boards might suit you - though you would need to get a PC card for the bluetooth/wlan. You can get daughterboards for multiple PC cards and have up to two
