ive got an antec case with a swingout door. i was going to either mount mine in the door or the front grille. ive seen someone with an lcd pressing against the side window attached by screws and it looks good pretty good.

I am temporarily doing my externally with a project box, mainly till i get my new case so i can mount it properly and the exact way I want it. The wires have to be alot longer with the project box, but when i get my new case it will be nice cuz i will be able to hide them easier. Also I didnt use a printer cable, i just got a 25 pin male connector and housing for it b/c the printer cable is alot thicker and i wanted something real thin, its easier to hide that way. I think im covering al thw wired in heat shrink, so that cuts down on size a bit.

BTW I ordered heat shrink off e-bay and only paid $0.12 cents a ft for it. I had to order 150 feetm but that was no big deal. Didnt want you to think i was wasting like 6 feet of heat shrink at $1.00 a foot :lol:
