This is basically what I did for my project using shift registers. It should allow you to get the general gist of how it works.

For the touchscreen: http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/139

Check out sparkfun. Its where I get most of my hobby products (in addition to Jameco and Digikey). Sparkfun has a ton of tutorials on how to use their products.

That definitely helps, im gonna contact him later and ask about seeing those schematics

Okay, so basically i hook up power and signal pins and the rest is through the software?

Yup, for that style touch screen it basically passes you an X-Y location and then you decipher from there.

ok thats easier then i thought, ive been having a hard time finding a screen that will fit a 5.25 drive bay with half an inch or so on either side, so i should say i cant find any sources of touch screens larger then an itouch one

well if i get a 4:3 screen, it will need to be 5.5 or smaller for my purposes...5.7 i might be able to work with, but does anyone know where i could find such a touchscreen?

edit: will this one work?

it seems to have a power connector and 4 data pins on a ribbon canle, so i guess id be doing some soldering to get it to work with the arduino once i know what pins are what?

Backlight driver-(i can probably incorporate this into the main circuit any way)

ribbon connector-(gotta incorporate this into the board to send the signal through)

the data would be different for each hardware. you'll run into the same problem speedfan did when new mobo's came out. speedfan can read and control the fans according to CPU, GPU, mobo, HDD(smart) data but when new mobo's come out, it's back to square 1 because the method of reading have changed due to different temp sensors etc...

however, it's worth investigating.

Maybe i can use a third party program to fetch the data for me, and then use its data output....

well, you can cheat and use the rheosmart method and just take the speed control from a PWM header (or maybe even a 3pin fan header) and manage the fans/pumps that way. but you wont be getting the actual temp readings with this method.
