This is basically a NEC MultiSync LCD1970NX(New cost $350).that I purchased in parts from Ebay.
I got the Lcd screen 1st new $42 shipped, next the OSD board $12 shipped,then the Inverter board & the controller board $32 shipped. It took some bit of research to find the schematics for, but possible.I made a basic stand out of plexglas and attached the boards to the back(Osd & computer power controls glued to bottom of frame).
This model has an auxiliary USB hook up,which means by connecting 1 line in USB I get 4(Which is pretty handy cause rest of computer is in closet,behind the wall). I then made a wooden cabinet to put it in also stuck my speakers behind it inside the cabinet(Just to make it neat & complete).Another great thing about this model is you can plug 2 different sources of video into it (got a feed of the TV).
So all together it cost me $101!!!

great find, and great work with all that. I'm considering getting a heating strip to bend some plexi to add into my cpu cooler testbed. It won't be anything complex, but it'll look great still having bent plexi.

I would love a howto for bending plexi. Ive thought about possibly cone shaping a 90 or 120mm exaust vent into a side panel(give it abit of a 3D look.)

This is "How I do It" : Get a 1 gauge steel 90* piece (I cut a piece of a steel
bed frame 14")spray it on out side of angle with "White lithium grease w/ teflon" (got it in auto dept.Wal-Mart). Clamped in bench vise heat it up red hot with butane torch on inside of angle, then press plexiglas( also heated up slightly with torch) on outside angle to bend it.Clean plexi up with steel wool and emery cloth.

Man thats crazy. I wonder now since lcds are so cheap if you would still be saving $ if you bought each separate part online?

The cheapest ones I see are still more than $101 ,but thats what they are also The real cheap brands,which translates to poor quality much less features. I did it this way so I could get the features I wanted from a real good brand at a price I could afford.It took about 8 months to get all the parts and put it together(As when I'm working I don't have alot of spare time ie...3Kids,and six Grandkids).
