Can you share the part number for the controller? I think I want to do this ! I can piecemeal this instead of getting nagged to death by the wife for buying a whole monitor.

I am so doing this. That is fantastic! As Awaz said, can you share the model number of the controller? I am having trouble finding one.

Wow... just wow. $250 for a higher res than $1000 will get you from Dell.
