Default Computer installed in CD player case, need opinions...

I have recently undertaken the task of installing a computer in a CD player case, the motherboard doesn't have inbuilt sound or graphics, but I am looking tio swap it for one that does.

It;ll play both MP3s and CDs and I was wondering if you think its a good idea.. I want to build a small amp into it too, and possible include a TV tuner card.. what do you think?

Nice job, I don't see card's inserted in the mobo, is everything on board? It's difficult to find small soundcards / videocards.

I am planning on using a DC-DC powersupply with an external transformer, this way it can also be run in the car ETC.. The powersupply is already mounted in it... Its the thing between the motherboard and the front of the case, sortov next to the CDrom drive..

Really Realistic?
The buttons, the front panel and even the chassis are from the Technics... os vice versa...

A nice mobo for something like that is the via mini-itx. Plenty of room inside your case for that. Everything onboard: video, sound, usb, eth, vidoe out, spdif, firewire, ser, par, and a cpu that uses 10W, with a tiny fan. And hardware accelerated mpeg on the latest, but that one is hard to find.

Go to www.mini-itx.com for a primer.

made one last year works great networked it with my server so i can download movies and mp3's. i used a industrial single board computer. it has onboard lan gps support for larg drives and small laptop drives.the board only runs on 12volt and 5 volt.so finding a small psu was easy took one out of a dead printer.put it all in a box the size of a ps2 playstation. a year later took it apart needed the part's. still got the back plate. it was about this size
