    General Info

    Hey All,

    I love the idea of a carputer, and have been looking for a way to upgrade my truck for a while. Looks like I found it! I originally wanted to do a laptop and docking station, but figured it would become a pain with the on-off, so I have decided to just make one like everyone else has. I had some basic questions on equipment. I am not looking for highend, but middle grade equipment right now. I want to have the MP3, DVD, CD, GPS capabilities.

    Does anyone have any reccomendations on adequate equipment? I have looked at almost all of the threads here, so I have learned a lot, but just wanted reccomendations from people who have setup their systems.

    Thanks for your recommendations!

    What equipment?
    Motherboard-
    Processor-
    Soundcard-
    videocard-
    Touchscreen-
    DVD/CD player-
    GPS unit-
    Map software-
    software-
    Power supply-

    What else am I missing?

    thanks for the info guys, I have been looking around and have picked out some of the peices so far.

    Some more questions- does anyone have or make an advanced sound card. Something with multiple outs on it and an eq to control each out individually. I was thinking of doing something in the boat also, but wanted to get rid of a couple of things(head unit, extrnal EQ) and have everything run off the signal from the sound card.

    THANKS!!!!
