    I supose read stuff, but I can see then you'd need to know what to read right?

    I would recommend reading some LCD reviews, a PSU review, and then figure out what type of front end you want to run, download as many as you can, and try them out, and read GPS reviews, software and hardware.

    Try the FAQ Emporium. That will get you started. There's even a "newbie's guide to" link in there.

    Then, wander over to the "Show off your project" forum to see installs by members. You'll learn lots from seeing how it's done. Don't forget to check out the "Worklogs" subforum where folks document their installations.

    how many posts are going to start:

    IM A NEWB HELP ME WITH a, b, c, 1, 2, and 3 please

    and then replied:

    WELCOME goto the FAQ section, and search more

    JESUS CHRIST i thinks we need a sticky in the newb forum that says first and foremost to check the FAQs and search....or that animated gif where it shoes a cursor going to post and a hand moves it to search...
