    Hi The lcd came with the MSI Mega PC 651 as did the motherboard, and the PSU which is a 200w supply! Which when the pc is not on powers the cd rom and lcd and acts like a HIFI. The TFT is the LILLIPUT 7" TOUCHscreen VGA.

    You can't seriously mean that this is your first mod, it's so sweet. Maybe it's your first mod, but definately not your first interaction with self buildt pc's!

    Hi I get the polycarb out of a skip!, Surprising what the local plastic company calls offcuts! :eeek: The Trailer carrys the keyboard and all the other bits required to operate the pc. Which means I dont have to carry anything when I go to lan's!
