    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    There's your problem right there.
    You went out and bought a bunch of stuff before having a plan for how the stuff will work together.

    Here's the FAQ for you:
    http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/advfaq.php

    It's a starting point.

    You need to figure out what power the motherboard requires. ATX? 12v? 19v? Something else?
    You need to figure out the same thing for your LCD, as well as anything else you intend to be powered for your little project.

    Get manuals, datasheets, white papers, FAQs or anything that even resembles information about your hardware.

    Now is the time to learn.

    I will say this...
    Had you gone to the FAQ in the first place, you might not have been so hasty in your purchasing decisions.


    Good luck, and welcome to the madness. Two scoops for you.

    I would say screen resolution is too low and thus not suitable.

    For anyone who comes upon this thread;

    I've been looking into something like this lately. VIA are releasing the P700 series (currently slated for September). This looks to be extremely well suited for use as a portable device but would likely play nice n' easy with a strictly auto setup as well. Here's a link:

    As for this type of LCD, I could be wrong but the LCD seems to use a Hirose 40 or 60 pin/TTL type connection, where the Pico-ITX has onboard LVDS (by way of a pin header I believe). There may be a way to make it work, but it could take some searching to find the answer as it's a bit of an advanced engineering topic, or so it would seem.
