    Non-TS, with non-VGA input can be had for about $50-$80. Then the touchoverlay is $40. Then the touch controller is $50. So you are back up to $150 for a non-VGA touchscreen.

    If you are not in a hurry to get one, just like anything else you will come upon a deal at the price you are willing to pay. I would definitely suggest a model witha vga input though. I have been running one with a composite input for several years and I just got a Xenarc TS to replace it for better resolution and of course the TS

    The touch overlay is the actual touchscreen part. It is 2 sheets of clear hard material (similar to glass, but not) with wires running the perimeter. This is what goes over (or overlays) the LCD itself, so that the screen becomes touchscreen.
