    Question a newb question about motherboards

    well its my first post here.
    been reading these forums for about 2 months now while i was shopping for a car and i just bought a dodge neon 95 for pretty cheap and in awesome shape.
    so i wanted to put in a little carputer for gps and music because i suck at directions haha
    but whats the best mother board for a carputer right now
    i know they have those compact ones but which ones come with onboard video and sound and such
    and also where can i read up on powering my computer i read a few posts here on it but i really havent gotten my mind around it
    i'm really familiar with computers i can build them from scrath no prob looked at a few motehrboards but cant seem to find any that are mini with all the parts installed
    thanks guys for any help and hopefully once i get my first carputer installation going i can be the person helping a noob

    welcome!

    well im horrible at directions too =/
    but the motherboard your talking about is the epia series. do a search on epia and you will find alot of information. the m10000 seems to be the most popular right know. it comes with usb2.0, video, sound,lan alot for a little thing.
