    Newbie From Sweden Needs Help =)

    Hi everybody! iv´e been thinking a long time about installing a carputer put never had the economy for it until recently =) i am currently living in Sweden where there seems to be a lack of hardware for this type of thing. All that i could find to use with my system is the following piece of hardware http://www.viavpsd.com/product/epia_...herboardId=141
    and for power supply i found this http://www.highgreen.nl/products/powersup/powerset.htm

    now, the question is, will this setup be enough and the most inportant, can i use it in a car?!

    bying things from the US is out of the question because of the cost, shipping will ruin me =)

    i have been searching around this forum alot but haven´t found anything matching this setup...so please, just answer if u can, i´m already having a hell understanding everything (im from Sweden)

    Thanx!!

    /Aleks

    Try to use a more descriptive Subject, shipping is about 200kronor extra, no deal.

    yeah! maybe, but bying a Opus for ~2000Kr is alot =) more than the computer itself =) there´s got to be a cheaper way (except transformer 12v-220v)

    Heja Sverige!!!

    Well where do you live?
    I live in GBG, I got a complete running carputer setup in my car now.

    check out www.icd.se
    they got the PW-70A
    and ITPS
    the cheapest via motherboard can you buy from komplett.se

    I bought my screen from cartft.com, you can buy it in sweden too, but here it costs the double. (at least)

    i was thinking about getting a VIA Epia V8000..that´s a 800MHz setup...i think that will do the trick...
    next question, can i use a standard 5.25" DVD player with a 100W power supply? all i have to power will be 1-HDD, 1-DVD and the mObO
