Default Got a question about some LCD screens

Right, well i'm looking to build a very small LCD monitor (3" maybe)
And I have been looking at LDC screens to build it and most carry quite a hefty price tag for my taste.
Well, I came upon replacement ipod and psp screens for about $20 American.
I was wondering if there is anyway to rig one up to be used as a monitor or if anyone knows of any cheap small LCD screens that would be great.

Thanks
Bob

I'm looking for one to make a computer monitor.
One I can watch maybe some movies on, or play some NES games.

Play mario on a 3" screen? o hell no....I'd rather play it on a 19" or 22" lcd......or better yet a 37" lcd. Spend your money on that.
