A master with Desktops, complete noob with Carputers.
Ok, so this is what I want to run, I want to know if its unrealistic, if its going to totaly drain my battery, or if it is doable.
I have a spare P4 2.4 w/ HT, and an asus P4P-800VM Mobo, 512 MB DDr 400, and a GeForce 4 Ti4800 gfx card, WiFi and a DVD / CDRW combo. Aditionaly I want to run a Sound Blaster Xetigy, 40 gig Laptop HD, 7 inch touch screen and an FM Tuner, possibly a rear webcam.
I know its overkill for DVD's and MP3's, but it would also be nice to let ppl play Doom 3, or Far Cry while driving. Is this realistic, or am I dreaming.
What type of PSU will I need, without an inverter, and is it possible to put the system into hibernate mode over night, while the car is off so I dont need to wory about powering it up fully every day.
