    Quite urgent..please help...

    I've got about 2 hours to decide if I should buy this screen from a college of mine:

    http://www.allcam.biz/products/318gl-70tv.html


    It's the top one.
    I want to run a PC to the composite input of the screen but im told the resolution of the screen is sub 800x600 so the PC won't even display on this screen....
    Is that true??
    Thanks

    That's great thanks...
    I mainly want it for the media engine software (playing mp3's that kinda stuff).
    I've noticed the skins are all sized either 640x480 or 800x600 so does that mean that the skins won't display correctly on this screen?

    I had trouble getting the right resolution, and the quality was atrocious. So bad that it's not making it into my car. But I got my cheap on ebay. Save up some $$ and get a nice screen.

    Get a VGA screen, composite screens suck for PC displays.
