I was wondering if anyone new the basic temperatures that a computer (motherboard, Video Card, Hard Drive) can take before it either craps out or snaps. I'm looking for a High temperature and a Low Temperature. I ask because I am thinking about installing a computer into me Jeep so that I can GPS cheaply, as well as a few other things that I can do. I say a cheap GPS because the only thing that I have to buy is a monitor which even the bigger monitors are still cheaper than a GPS system for a vehicle.

Look into Mini ITX systems. Cheap and very low temps. Those are the only computers you'd want ot run in a car. Unless, of course, you want to run the A/C in the dead of winter.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
