Wow! I'm also a lurker (haha lots of lurkers runnin' about it seems), but OMG! You have the exact LCD I was contemplating about getting. Can you please take as many photos as you can...that would be awesome. Also, overall are you satisfied with it? How much better is the nvidia card able to display than the ati? Hahah I came on the forums like 5 minutes ago looking for LCD threads on this bery LCD panel! Fancy I would find it so fast! So does anybody have info on these LCD's? Like who makes them them and their specs? Cool and congrats man! That thing will look sweet!!! Oh yeah had one more question, how does the lcd fold down and pop up? Is it like a swivel stand sorta thing or does it actually pop out? Thanks!
EDIT: Please ignore m ignorance in that post. I got a little excited. I found all the info I was looking for already. I just need you honest opinion as to whether you like it and also a more detailed explanation of how much more detailed the nvidia card was (I'm in the market to buy one) Much obliged.

Lol. I'm used to forums with alot of people so I feel down when I visit a thread 12 hours later and see no reply.... But yeah...one other thing I was wondering. Do you have a friend who has a voodoo card? Something like a 3000 or 3500 or something. That was the one I was planning to get to save room on my board since it's the only agp card that has a fm and tv tuner. And more pics! Please!
RCA only. There is in fact, two video inputs on the screen. However, if you only have the ability to output to s-video, there is a s-video to composite adapter that can be had for about $4 on www.compgeeks.com
As far as the difference between the nVidia and the ATI cards, its truely like looking at the difference between night and day. I would assume the nVidia video cards have a much better video out chip that produces a much crisper image.
What was the Nvidia card's manufacturer and model? Does the card have an RCA output? I used an Nvidia geforce 2 with s-vhs out and could not get very good results with this very same model of screen. I used a $50 converter from Radio Shack to get the signal to an RCA type. Thanks for any input.
The card was a plan jane GeForce 3 I believe. I think the problem in your setup is the $50 thingie from Radio Shack. Buy one of these bad boys for $4 and all your troubles will be gone....
