Your best bet is to use a ps1 car adapter for it. I ended up doing this and it works perfectly.

no the car adapter plugs into the car and converts the 12 volt dc from the comp to what ever voltage needed to run the lcd...
and to hook it up you should be able either hook it up via rca cable or use bit-tech's method and solder it to a vga plug but that is all up to you...

how much does one of these badboys cost, and what kind of inteface does it have, vga/svideo/rca or something?A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

i believe vga, and cost ive seen around 60$ online.....way cheaper than buying a stand alone LCD. and it fits PERFECTLY in a 3x3.5" bay
edit: So when i hook this up...and im running winamp or sumthing....then i start a game....does teh second screen go off? i heard it does with secondary moniters plugged into one card. any ways around this?

as long as your big monitor is primary, your secondary shouldn't turn off...A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Darn, I wana use my tft on dvi, but dvi is the secondary connector...any way to specify which connector you wana act as primary?

Yup, Just select which monitor you want as primary (1 or 2) then check this box (Mine's greyed out cause I only have one monitor connected ATM):

yea dvi and vga have nothing to do with which one is primary!A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

i have had 2 vga moniters hooked up b4, and i was using an extended desktop, and when i played a game, the other shut off. is this due to the extended desktop? or my graphics card?

so if i turn that off, it will stay on when i run games or other fullscreen apps?
is there a key or sumthing to change the active desktop then?
