    Best place to get LCDs?

    I'm looking for a touchscreen LCD for my CarPC, something in the 7-8" range. It can't be motorized, since I need my head unit still for CDs/FM radio. It should have a minimum 800x600 native resolution, since I'll be using it for GPS, web browsing, etc. I'm also looking for something less than $200, since I've spent way more than I should have on this project already. I've found this one on ebay, any opinions or other suggestions?

    LVDS is also an option, but reading other posts here it seems it's impossible to get LVDS monitors in this size. If anyone knows otherwise though, I do have an LVDS connector on my Jetway J7F2WE, and I'd prefer to leave the VGA port unused for now so I can add a monitor in the back later.

    Thanks!

    an 8" LVDS panel with a touch screen and a custom made cable to fit your Jetway board will set you back over 450.00

    Okay, so scratch the monitor in the back, didn't really need it anyways. I also checked out the prices on LCDs at mouser.com and avnet, neither of them had anything in my price range.
