    Advice building first/new system

    I am looking to build my first CarPC system and would appreciate any help in spec'ing my first system. The CarPC is going to replace my current Alpine dvd/navigation flip out and would like to keep the basic functions (mp3/navigation/dvd/sirius/radio) as a part of the CarPC. Any other utlities I should not be without in a CarPC?

    My budget for the project will be 1500.00 +/- a screen, and would like to be able to mount the unit under the front seats or in the glovebox of a bmw.

    Thanks for the time and help.

    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Thanks for the reply's. I've torn through the faq/n3wb sections but still am questioning reliability. I live here in Arizona and dont know what hardware is going to be most reliable/suitable.

    I was thinking of going with the ZoomPC case or with the AOpen unit. Which, if either of those would be the most solid starting point for a solid system?

    thanks

    you need to decide if you're going to go big system or small system (ATX/mATX/mini-ITX/laptop?). after that dicission is made, I would concentrate on the insides, not really the case.

    I like the size factor of the mini-atx cases (zoomPc, Aopen,etc..).
    I would like the functions of my current deck with the CarPc, and wanted recommendations on a solid system which others have had experience with.
