1st ever Skoda Octavia Carputer
hi after reading these boards for a while i thought i would give it a try, as of this afternoon i now have a fully working computer in my 2000 skoda octavia but i thought i would be a bit different as i couldn't bring myself to run something as slow as a EPIA board along with there high prices's and sweat shop build quality, so here goes...
PC_CHIPS p3 1.5gig atx-flex board £32 ---Maplins
512mb Twinmos RAM £20 ---Ebay
16x DVD RW £39 ---Ebuyer.com
180gig Seagate hd £80---Ebuyer.com
7" fully motorised in-dash touch screen £89---Ebay
ATI Remote bob £17---Atx-warehouse
M1-Atx 90w psu £24---Atx-warehouse
using Media-car as a front end and xp-corp with sp2 stripped down to only 175mb it runs like hell and loads in under 20 seconds :D , it allows me to play dvd.divx,mp3 internet and gps and most games i throw at it,
i might add i have been running it for about a month off a car charger now before fitting it.
I will add some pics as soon as i get a chance in the morning
