The Sound card will cost you around 5-6k and the monitor will also be 5-6k. Is the monitor only gonna be in the Boot? or you have something else in mind?

Boot is the best place to install. If my dad allows me, Then i had plans to seal my rear doors and make my ride a strict 2seater and so I might use that place for this purpose too

Guys, Need some suggestions here.
My cabinet is big enough to accomodate PCI cards, But my motherboard has only 1 pci slot which I'm confused to use with a graphic card or a sound card?! Both will work well for me so I'm totally confused what to use it for. What do you guys think?

Graphic card or sound card ? And why?

First off, what are you looking at? Smooth HD playback on a bigger screen? or Better Sound out of your System.

You will definitely get a Very good PCI sound card, an Auzentech X studio maybe?

As for PCI Graphic cards are concerned you dont have many powerful options here.

I would recommend going for a sound card as it will fill up the headroom for your sound. As your for your present screen the onboard is sufficient.

If you are upgrading your screen then its a different case all together.

At what resolution is your screen rated at? At lower resolution than 1024x768, the CPU is stressed more than the graphic card. So you might want to look into upgradtion or Overclocking the CPU before going in for a new graphic card.

So it will be better If you go for a CPU upgrade or Overclock it. I see that you have not specified your CPU on the first page.

@Bumble beast:
LOL, My bad!
I'm using an atom 230 processor.

@akaushik : Thanks mate, Looking at your reply, I feel that even you're planning to get a carputer for your ride? Aren't you?
