    Yes, but it will look like **** because of the composite interface. The touchscreen won't work with a PC.

    It can't hurt to try it and see how it looks. But 0l33l is right, it will probably look really crappy and hard to read.

    Ram= 640mb
    Ps= m1-atx
    Screen= Lilly 7" ts
    Hd= 40gig

    Yep. And it won't have a working touchscreen.

    Looks like your gonna have a double monitor setup.

    This could definitely be good thing(despite $$). If you can find a way to integrate the screen to look good then its like the coolness factor x 2.

    DO IT!!

    If you could afford the kenwood you can afford a new screen. Keep it as a second screen connected to the composite out on your computer. If you set it up correctly you can use the new screen as a control and have the kenwood play the video/visualization.
