    Some questions about the system I'm planning on buying.

    What do you think about this system? Is this a good price? What else am I missing? My purposes for the carputer are music, movies, navigation, and possibly wireless.

    I am missing a power supply. What is the difference between Opus 120 vs. 150? I've been searching but found nothing. I read the spec and they seem to do the same things. The 150 seems to be more popular. What do you recommend?

    Is the On-board sound good enough or do I need a better sound card.
    Also, what is a good GPS receiver?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    GPS: Look into OEM before you just buy a USB GPS mouse like everyone else has. They lock really fast and have a lot of advantages over a gps mouse.

    Sound: I would just try out the onboard sound and if you don't like it add a sound card later. No point in buying one and using more of your power supplies limited resources if the stock sound would have been fine.
    Spent so far: $1,755
