    Newbie: Is this a good starting Point?

    I found this system on E-bay

    http://cgi.ebay.com/MINI-ITX-Complet...QQcmdZViewItem

    Would this be a good starting point. what would I need to upgrade. I was thinking I could upgrade the ram and processor(is it possible to upgrade the processor). I am interested in something that will play mp3's, wi-fi,GPS, maybe dvd's(not a priority), obd-II eventually(again no rush on this). WOuld I need to upgradeit to run mp3, wi-fi, gps?

    What would be left to buy if i were to purchase this system? would I need aditional power suply add-ons? obviously a touch screen.

    It jsut seems like at that price I could get a good start.

    what do you think?

    New to CarPCs? Don't know where to start?

    read it, live it, learn it, love it.

    That's what I think

    excuse me!?

    I'm trying to help you. If you're not willing to read to learn how to do this stuff, you need to either buy a prebuilt all-in-one unit (and spend a LOT of money) or find another hobby. And even if you buy a prebuilt, you need to figure out how to work it, trouble shoot it, use it, install it, etc.

    btw - name calling - it's against the forum rules...consider this a warning. Next one gets you a 3 day ban.

    Dude, you're putting a friggin PC into a car.
    ANY PC can be a good starting point.

    However, if you want to have the best chance for a successful, stable installation, you need to do some research. These forums and the FAQs that have been compiled are the best source of information for that research.

    You were given a link to one of those FAQs, particularly one catering to newbies, like yourself. Rather than ***** about it and call a moderator a dick, why don't you take the information that was given to you and actually do some ******* research?

    We're not going to hand you answers. We'll gladly point you to where the answers are, though.

    BTW, is it just sort of funny that Red was called a dick, when she obviously has none?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    yeup - hopefully this new member will snap into reality and realize this may not be the hobby for them....if they aren't willing to do the research.
