PLAN: 05 Acura RSX Type-s carputer
Well I just picked up a brand new RSX-S a couple of weeks ago and have been planning on installing a carputer for some time now. I am in dire need of some recomendations on a) motherboard b) power supply c) ram d) drives e) sound card. I will be replacing the entire BOSE system in my car and will run the audio through the carputer. The case for my carputer will also have to be very small, as it will have to fit underneath the passenger seat. I also will want a nice sound card to achieve the highest sound quality possible, but I'm not sure what sound cards will fit in a small mini-itx style case. I will also want my carputer to be able to run some pc games like counter-strike, diablo 2, and world of warcraft. I won't need the power to run games like Half Life 2 or the new Doom game that require the best graphics cards available. I was thinking about the EPIA motherboard/processors but I'm not sure exactly how to compare them to for example my current 3.4 ghz p4 desktop pc. How much slower would the EPIA's be? Also need a recommendation for a power supply that will fit in a mini itx case and will put the computer into and out of standby mode when the ignition is turned on and off. Thanks! Help is greatly appreciated.
