    Re: Carputer 101

    if it's just going to run a little more power, i'd rather take my chance with a regular hdd.

    What do you guys think of mounting my screen in my drivers visor?

    I've been using a regular 3.5" HDD for over a year with no problems whatsoever.

    There is no need to use laptop HDD's. I have been using a regular HDD since I the beginning, almost 2 years now. My hard drive literally sits on top of my sub enclosure, without any restraints. It bounces with every hit. never had a problem with it. It also runs fine in the cold, unless its below 10, even laptop HDD's won't do too well in those temps.

    Also. If i am going out of my motherboard into AUX input in my deck, do I need a really nice/expensive sound card? Or will i be fine with onboard sound.

    you don't "need" a sound card. You can most definitely use the onboard sound, but if your looking for SQ, this will not be your best option.

    Re: Carputer 101

    Also, you'll be hard pressed to find an ITX motherboard (really small one) with optical out onboard. You could use a large motherboard but that takes extra power. A soundcard drop in can have the optical digital output for interfacing with external processing.
