Yes, most of the members here (including me) power their LCD from the PSU. Read the sticky in the LCD forum, and see the choises.
Is this a good idea? If not, what would be more logical?
Yeah, but will I have a problem with the length of the cables? The blue lcd power line indicates lcd power and a long vga cable.
Hey, don't criticize my superior art skills

However I'd suggest keep it no longer than 5m, and use high quality cables, not only for the VGA but for most of your wires, as otherwise it may cause interference.
Yeah, my car is about 5m long I think so as long as I don't have to route it in a bunch of weird turns I should be fine. Thanks
