    Know about what? There are apparently some win 7 issues, but that's not your car environment. So there's no reason to think that a problem on a Win 7 test system indicates a problem with the device...

    The Xonar that would fit the easiest is a PCI_E low profile designed for home theater. But the PCI_E soundcards are expensive. Personally I would never bother for car video, and probably not for car...

    Doesn't he already own the hardware?

    ZX - there a reason it's called a SYSTEM. :) All the components need to be considered in the design.

    CF could probably run on one machine in virtual machines. But licensee wise it might see each as a separate device. So you would end up buying the licenses and the VM software.

    I've now been using the XF700's big brother, the XF1000, for a day. It's an extremely nice monitor. Everything about it is nicer than my Xenarc, as it should be for 3x the price.

    It uses the SSD as a read cache. It was well reviewed by anandtech. Seems like possibly a good choice for carpc if it doesn't have file corruption issues.

    I don't believe TRIM can work with SSD in Raid 0. A PCI-e SSD device would seem to be the way to go rather than raid 0 Sata.

    What are the actual max I/O numbers with SSD on an Atom N270?
