    thanks for the welcome,

    well, i don't plan any revolutionary/extencive mods for now. just wan't to see what can be done and go from there. as many people around here i'm also not swimming in extra cash so i'll need to plan gradually getting by with what i have as much as possible. I have old P3 system sitting in slim/micro case that will go under the seat. i still have the celleron CPU that came with the system originaly (had passive cooler) and i might experiment with it to - not planning to do any high end computing on it: music, video (for the passanger mostly) and navigation.

    i have modded xbox with 250gb drive in it working as mediacenter (XBMC) in the living room so initially i wanted to try xbox based carputer , but i really would like it to be touch screen rather then controller operated

    for the start i plan on getting monitor (leaning towards 8'' lilliput right now) and the DC-DC PSU first (thinking to go all out on PSU so not to be power constrained 1/2 year from now, and buy the thing twice), see where it brings me then add gps, dvd and eventually convert to mini ITX. plan is going to change dependidng on what cool stuff i'll be able to get on ebay and on cool stuff i'll read about around here.
