    Yeah it's a logitech quickcam pro for notebooks I think.
    Here are some pics of the new PC almost ready to go in the car. I'm just waiting for the ram to arrive tomorrow. It's definitely going to be a tight fit. That's what she said.

    I got my ram yesterday, put it in and nothing. The fans were spinning and the power light was on but no display. After some fooling around I noticed that there is no cable to connect the extra 12V 4 pin power from the M2ATX to the motherboard. The M2Atx didn't come with it and most power supplies will have branching off the main power cable. So I decided to make one from a plug I found in the junk drawer and I chopped the other one off a different power supply. I'll have to fix that one later. So after plugging that in, I get the fans powering up for a few seconds and then shutting down. I figured I wasn't giving the power supply enough current so tried it in the car and voila, bios screen. So today I picked up a 12V 5A power supply for the bench that should do the trick. My other supply was only putting out 2.5A which didn't cut it I guess.
    My next challenge is getting windows installed on this thing. I don't have a CD drive in it so I'll have to borrow one from another computer. I have a slim DVD drive but I don't have the 50 pin adapter cable for it. I wanted to try and install windows off a usb drive but that is proving to be way too difficult.

    I ended up having to hook up a CDrom, the USB install didn't work. I also had to do it hooked up to the car because it still won't run in the house with my new bench power supply.
    So windows is installed and some other drivers and such but it's running quite sluggish. I'm not sure what it would be but it takes a couple minutes just to boot up.
