    CarPC outline (need some suggestions)

    OK, Its me first post so go easy on me

    I'm getting a 2000 Civic Si soon and am looking to put a fairly cheap PC in for gps, mp3, and all the usual goodies. I'm pretty good with computers..at least from the software side, but I havent built a custom yet ::blushes:: so thats why I need your help.

    heres what I have

    cpu:http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...190-049&depa=0
    mobo:http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...135-154&depa=0
    cpu: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...112-172&depa=0
    vid card: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...102-437&depa=0
    ram: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...156-019&depa=0
    hdd: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...140-133&depa=0
    dvd-rom: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...101-124&depa=0
    sound card: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...102-178&depa=0

    I hope everythings compatible, hehe. I know I will have to buy a few more things here and there, but what do you think about these things? It totals to $381.27 so far.

    I will be using this w/ my sony hu (I will use the builtin amp..for now)


    you can see the specs here

    heres a general pic of the car


    And a pic of the console


    i will probably put my hu in the lower din like in the pic and use the double for the touch screen.

    Well, Thanks for reading this far . All comments (and criticism) are welcome.

    I'm not even going to open the links, because the individual components don't relly matter. You seem to have everything you need, except a few things.

    Power. You need to power all those components. You will need to find out how much wattage all that stuff is going to be drawing.

    It's a minor detail, but you are also going to need a case. I'm sure you thought about that. But just checking.
