    What would you get?

    Hi everyone,
    i've been reading the forums for quite a while now, and ive decided that i would finally register and make my first post. I have a 2003 hyundai Tiburon and i am going to put a carputer in it. I have a budget of $2500. I no that i want to go with a touchscreen monitor up front with 2 tvs in my visors and headrests also. I want to connect playstation 2 also. Im going to be building the computer into the trunk of the car in a false floor setup with my subs and amp. I have compiled a list of parts that i believe will go good with my setup. Basically i want the computer to do everything it can from MP3, to DVD, GPS, internet, everything. so basically my question is, what parts would everyone buy if they had $2500 to spend? thanks in advance for any help i can get on this topic.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Post your "list" and let people tell you the good/bad experiences that they have had with the products.

    Welcome.
    I wish i had $2500 even $250 owuld be awesome. Anyway,
    Your probably going to get a Xenarc 7" TS, they seem to be the best touch screens, there like $425 or so. A Opus 150w PS is the best way to power your comp. Its about $200. Ummm the Epia MII-12000 is really nice motherboard and cpu, and is more then all you need for a carPC (about $190). Get a laptop HD instead of a desktop, their more resistent to stupidity and bumps. a 40gb is only $70, and pop in 256/512 mp of ram ($40/70 respectively). a slim dvd drive ($60-120) and your carPC is done, now jsut add the features you want.( ie, radio($50), gps($100)) you can always for more details on all there parts. Hope this helps
    CarPC Status:
    [||..........] 12%: Planning

    Have:
    IRman PS2 Remote USB 2.0 Powered Hub Backup HD

    Coming Soon:
    Aopen Pandora Celeron M 1.4 CPU 256/512 DDR2 So-DIMM RAM Lilliput 7" Touchscreen VGA Car Power Supply (M/Opus)

    Don't forget the misc. stuff. Like wireless keyboard, mouse, and fabrication stuff. Also, wifi? bluetooth? Its the snowball effect... you get something then you have to get something else

    Yeh. I'm still doing the calculations for what mine is going to cost. I'm already out of $60 for a used earthmate and 7.99 + 10.99 for bondo
    *hopes I can shove a mATX motherboard (9.6") behind my radio (6.75")*
