With the amount of interest it generated, we couldn't let Bart "SpaceCase" Banaan get away with just one feature. And with the rise in popularity amongst the tweaking and modding community of the LCD, Bart has written a guide to fitting an external LCD to your PC. With his usual attention to detail, Bart has created a beautiful PlexiGlass stand to mount it on - and you won't believe how easy that is to make!
