Parts Ordered

Since approval was given I have taken the initiative to order the parts required for making the Knight Rider '06 project a reality.

The parts ordered are as follows:
1 x ElmScan 5 (for interfacing with the cars diagnostics)
1 x 7" Xenarc touch screen (for interfacing with and viewing output data from the computer)
1 x Panasonic CD-RW/DVD-Rom slot loading slim type Disc Drive (for adding data to the computer)
1 x Mini-itx PC case w/ 120w power supply (encloses computer in safe environment and provides power to its components)
1 x VIA EPIA SP13000 Mini-ITX Motherboard (the heart of the computer)
1 x Slim Type Disc Drive Adapter (for interfacing the slim disc drive with standard components)
1 x BU-353 Waterproof GPS Receiver (GPS antenna for use with GPS software receives data based on location)
1 x USBBT100 Linksys USB Bluetooth Adapter (for interfacing the car with cell phone, wireless keyboard, etc.)
1 x Sound Blaster Audigy 2ZS (provides optimal sound output)
1 x Labtec Microphone (allows cell phone usage through car handsfree)
1 x Radeon 128Mb 9250 PCI (provides higher quality video output to touchscreen)
1 x 100Gb Samsung 2.5" Hard Drive (stores data)
1 x Corsair 512Mb DDR 400 RAM (inserts into the motherboard and is essential for the computer to function)

These are the hardware components I have chosen after weeks of researching what the best components would be. Anyone who would like to see the process involved in selecting the components may e-mail me requesting them, but the document is too long to post.
