    if you are using that monitor, im assuming your going to use a video out on the motherboard. if this is the case, you may need another video card that has a video input, input the video, and then display it using your computer. simple as that. other option is to get a splitter, and have a switch so you can either see the pc screen, or whatever is on the rear view. hope that makes sense. -Ryan

    Read the product manual, either before or after you buy it, I would recomend before. That is what documentation is for.

    I would think the video signal from the camera (you should know type you want) will connect to the video in on the PC and display the picture on the monitor you are planning on using. This may mean a video capture card will be needed.

    Is that better? Can I have my spoon back now?
