    Buying a Epia V10000, which case and PSU do I want?

    I want to spend less than $100. I'm going to be hooking it up in the back of my Isuzu Trooper. I'll want it to come on when I turn my key to acc, and off when I take them out. I can work out the power part, I just want to know which case, power control switch, or power supply you suggest. I might be plugging in and external usb bluetooth radio, usb remote, or usb wifi card. It will most likely use a 2.5" HD and probably no CD rom at all.

    less then $100? that isnt possible unless you steal most of your parts.

    oh wait....less then $100 for just the psu and the case...wasnt reading correctly.

    i say build your own case and buy an m1-atx psu with shutdown control. thats what i did

    Then do I want to pull power directly from my battery and put in an inline fuse? Is there some sort of input on the m1 PSU that signals when the vehicle is running and when it isn't?

    What do you use as your front end to play music/video? Sage or something like that?
