    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

    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.
