I have an excess of old computer parts laying around my house, and I've decided to try to integrate some of them into my truck and possibly use it to replace my head unit.
This is what I have:
10gb Western Digital hard drive
Diamond Viper graphics card
Intel Pentium II 350mHz chipset and motherboard
Fan-cooled power supply
Generic Mouse/Keyboard control board
4 Slot USB input
Wireless Gateway keyboard and wireless Intel Laser Mouse
I can take all these pieces and put them together to make a working computer for my home, so I figure with a power inverter and a custom MDF box, I can use them in my truck. However, I have a few questions that maybe someone here can help me with.
1. Will viberations/magnetic field from the subwoofer damage the computer?
2. Is there a graphics card or some other type of hardware that will convert standard monitor output to the yellow RCA wire I'd need to use a small LCD screen as a monitor?
3. How big of an inverter would I need to run something like this?
4. Can I build a computer box out of MDF if I use a ground distrobution block in place of the standard grounds that attach to the computer chassis and keep it cooled with a couple large fans?
