    well the time has come to install the computer in the car... now one of the hardest things to choose is the case... custom... or computer case... welll since i dont want to waste too much time with making a case i actually bought one. http://usa.aopen.com/products/housing/G325.htm its pretty much made for a car exept fro the size... its a good case that actually has the power supply outside... its got extra support for the hard drive to absorb shock and bumbs which is always good... n e ways check out the site and tell me what u think... i got the silver and black one. thanks!

    That case looks cool. Might be nice to have it out in the open on display. Like you said, a little too large for car, but the tradeoff is that it can hold a lot of stuff in there (2x 3.5" HDDs, 3.5" Floppy/Card Reader, 5.25" Optical drive, Full size PCI Cards, etc.) Although I don't know if you plan on installing that much stuff. Looks kind of like a Shuttle XPC. Its nice that it's meant to have an external PSU, at least you won't waste space on that.
