What's your budget?Originally Posted by JoeBS2004
If you're poor and broke, then work with what you have access to inexpensively.
If you're rolling in dough, pay me and I'll hand-pick the best of the best parts for you... Mind you I'll mark them up to pocket some green for myself.
Seriously, to do what you want, most people like the EPIA M10000 board. It's reasonably powerful. Certainly enough to do what you've stated you want the PC to do. It's also small, and had a relatively low power draw, both considerations when installing into a vehicle.
Use the SEARCH function here. I'm not trying to be a dick by telling you this.
Look at what other people have done and the hardware they've used. Ask them pros/cons about what they're using. Check out the available options. Go into your local computer store and talk motherboards and processors. Fry's is awesome, if you've got one near you, since they stock a large variety of motherboards & CPUs.
Frankly, the EPIA setup doesn't have the oomph that I want for my truck project. Nothing against it. When I work on the girlfriend's carPC, it's probably what I'll use as a base.
