You can also use a mini-itx motherboard with a pico psu which can take 12 volts from a battery.

But it depends on your application which board is best. If you don't want to use high processing power for a kinect and cost is a big factor then a Raspberry Pi or a beagleboard are good options.

Installation see here.

You should determine how many Watts your pc need, pick the appropriate picopsu and plug that in to the atx power plug of you motherboard. Like this:
