I might be getting a CC soon (from its original owner), and if it works out I will be converting it to a CCC. Can anyone point me to simple/direct info on what's needed/best for this? I know I need a P-ROC, a PC, and want to add a color display. Looking for specifics on what type of PC (will a barebones motherboard be OK, and what I/O is needed?), what kind of color display is best, info on installing/mounting/setup, etc. I searched and read a bunch of random info, but still haven't found this clear, concise info. Thx!

Pretty easy. Any PC core 2 class with USB port and headphone jack will do. I have winds 7 installed on mine. I picked up an LCD from goodwill for $25 and decased and mounted it. For audio you can go the audio route I outlined in the CCC software thread. I'd use a smart power strip to handle the PC and perhaps install a push button for power in the front if the cabinet somewhere.

For the PC, there are tons on eBay that work for around $175.00 shipped.

Thx! I actually have an old laptop with a Core 2 processor, 1.8GHz I think. All you need is USB and headphone jack? What size LCD is needed--something just bigger than a DMD, so it fits in the backbox? I'll check the CCC software thread too. Would be cool if I could mount the laptop and screen in the backbox, but I presume I need a standard video input for the monitor.

Not following you on the mounting of an LCD in a CC DMD hole/the physical fitting proportions--have a pic?

Eric sells an LCD monitor and correct mount for the game that plugs right in.
Might want to go that route to avoid guesswork/hassle.
Check the CCC thread.

Two-Fiddy. But I don't have any left right now.

I do not have a pic. I removed the case on the monitor which made it pretty small. I believe I gorilla taped the monitor into place and made a small mount bracket out of some crap I had using around. The whole process took about 30 minutes and has been solid. It was easy to position the colorized dot matrix window in the software.
