  • Help me choose CHEAP LCD please

    Okay,

    Been reading for a few months, and two days ago a buddy gave me an AMD mainboard, SB Live card, and 3DFX video card (with dual out).

    I decided to make my first carputer out of it.

    I have some RAM and a chip comming off of eBay and am going to go buy a case tomorrow (probably a mid size tower - I have tons of room in the trunk of my bonneville, and since the battery is under the rear seat, running power will be EASY).

    All I want by September is GPS and maybe mp3 (will be going on honeymoon and camping - want GPS in case I get lost so I don't have to ask for directions ).

    Please name off some CHEAP lcds that will look okay with gps - it would be cool to be able to view DVDs too, but for now I need cheap (because planning weddings isn't cheap -- dammit).

    Thanks for your help,

    Marc
    If at first you don't succeed, so much for skydiving!

    It would kinda help to know what your price range is. Since this will be hooked up to a computer you will want to get a VGA Screen. Yes there are cheaper LCDs out there but from what I have heard on this forum they don't do very well when you hook them up to a computer. So just spend the money on a VGA screen and do it right the first time and you will save money.

    Main thing to look for is VGA like I said.
