    I've often thought that perhaps we ought to post a description of 3 different systems that Newbies could follow. For example:

    System 1 - "The Low Power Special".

    Characteristics: low electrical power consumption, relatively slow processor, capable of meeting most carputing needs. DVD, mp3, GPS, etc.


    Motherboard: Epia Via 10000 ($160)
    Memory: 512mb ($95)
    Disk drive: 60 gig Fujitsu 2.5" laptop drive ($95)
    Screen: Lilliput 7" with touch ($280)
    Power: M1-ATX90 ($79)

    Add your own: keyboard, mouse, audigy sound card

    Total System Cost: $709

    And maybe a couple of others like a mini-ATX, or Shuttle, or full blown gaming machine.

    Then sticky it so the n00bs would have something to reference

    There are lots of options.
    Of course I build one that works for me. But many people have gone before me and many of them have chosen similar components for various reasons. I'm not asking for anything new, the information is all here. I simply being a noob and suggesting this list is something many noobs might want in an easily digestible format.

    Now, off to go read the great wiki debate threads.

    Ok, I realize my mistake. "Wiki" isn't going to happen, and I didn't know about the FAQ section. The format doesn't matter, it's that it exist in some easy to digest form like a single page or a few pages, not scattered over posts.

    So, I stand behind my request for a "most commonly used parts" list. It looks like I'll write up some FAQ entries and email them to bgoodman as the FAQ says.
