    Thats actually a very good idea, depending on the price I reckon you could shift quite a few of them just here on the forums alone. It's caught my attention thats for sure.

    Just a quick little update really - broke out the laser guided Fret Saw and attacked a bit of 2mm aluminium sheet to make a new bezel for the Cosmos II which will hold the TFT with double sided foam tape once its been etch primed and painted carbon black.

    Anyway, once the TFT is mounted, the whole thing will bolt onto the front of the XSPC dual DDC Bay Res so it will be pretty sturdy :thumb:

    Oh yeah, i also filed a 45 degree chamfer onto the cut edges so its easier to use the touch screen.

    Ive got a screen setup for LAN announcements on the side of my case

    Its a 7" screen running on HDMI your screen looks higher quality and touch screen is a big plus. If your selling them and not too expensive ill have one off you

    Yeah works really well, means i can keep track of stuff going on while in game instead of having to tab out and check. (I also have hot keys setup that dont effect in-game so i can scroll etc within that window independently)
    I also ran some video streams on there from time to time which worked out ok but would really need to be horizontal for Video to work well.

    CM - have you got this connected up as a secondary display, or to a whole separate graphics interface? If you do decide to shift some, I'd love one. I've been thinking about a screen like this for AAGES, mostly for Car PC and tinkering, but hey, they look pretty cool in a case...

    Forgot to mention, I've got mine set-up and running at the side of my desk.

    Currently running at 720p and displaying email and RSS feeds. Awesome little bit of kit.
