Uses for spare touch screen in build...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This is a 15" touchscreen that was in my music system awhile back. I never used it from the day I got it. It was the main display connect via VGA/USB. Now i'd like to use it in my next build. Id like it just be a controller for fans, pumps and temps but I have no clue where to start. I know plenty of companies make lcd touchscreens for 5.25 bays but since I already have a mammoth screen already, why not go over the top thumb.gif










Where do I even start? There are some buttons on the side that I have no clue what they do. I guess since its VGA, at the very least I can use it as a second display but that's not the route I want to go. I don't want it messing with windows at all. Just the simple GUI displays Aquacompter or NZXT use. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
