    that alpine won't work for you as it's not VGA compatable.

    You need a VGA compatable screen else you won't have any fun working with Windows.

    Search here:

    for VGA touch screens

    (or any number of other online stores)

    tell me more about your PSU

    sounds like more than anything you haven't found the right places to look for product, and that you havent done ANY research on this board, which is a BIG no no.

    Get to it.

    VGA refers to the resolution the monitor can support in this case. There is no VGA input, only RCA video. RCA video sucks for a PC as a general rule. With tweaking, you can get a marginally OK image quality, but no better.
    The touchscreen will not control the PC, only the headunit functionality.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Start reading in the FAQ Emporium.
    It's got all the information you'll need.

    ok - again I say - use the search function - that very basic of questions has been covered hundreds of times it seems like.

    read the FAQs and study. This isn't a project that you can just buy the parts and throw it in a car all in a weekend.

    You need to do quite a bit more research it sounds like.
