    well. i've done the dvd backup thing, and the xbox modding thing. looks like its time for the next project. I've decided to mod an xbox into what it should have been: a true pc/digital command center.

    What i plan to do:
    i plan on modding an xbox case and putting in a 933mhz Via EPIA-M9000 motherboard/cpu, a dvd drive, and a 40gb harddrive. I plan to use this for the living room and also for the vehicle (lcds to play emulators, watch dvds, listen to mp3s, and more).

    Items being used:
    VIA EPIA-M9000 mini-itx mobo/cpu combo
    Maxtor fireball 40GB harddrive
    LG DVD-Drive
    Xbox Case (tentatively, might try to go retro like i've seen a few people do and use a nintendo case or a atari2600, we'll see).
    Mini-ATX Powersupply
    DC inverter (for car)
    Another LCD display.

    I hope to run windows xp prof on it.

    I'll update my websites with my progress on this project.
    if any one has any ideas or suggestions, drop me a note!
