    i will be installing a carpc therefore will not require a stereo. will however need an Amp to run my speakers and connect them to the PC.

    i am looking for a AMP + Complete Wiring Setup.

    dont want to spend to much. just something that will allow me to play music. loudish but i dont need it stupidly loud.

    Would help if you told us what wattage your speakers are putting out or at least the make?..

    Im guessing under 100W RMS anyways so ill suggest this amp (i use the same to power my fronts) and for the price its unbeatable -

    Wiring kit will vary, do you want to run more amps later on etc.. ? if so look at good thick gauge cable to run from you battery then chuck it into a distributer block and show 8 gauge to each amp.. otherwise just buy some cheap 8 or 12 AWG kit, but i would suggest doing it properly.

    Well cheapest option i can think of is keep the headunit you have, surly you dont HAVE to move it, then use the amp from that to run your 20-30w factory speakers. (assuming your headunit can take an input source from your carpc).
