Well, this would be a option, but in the case, that you buy a low cost
board with only three ore less pci slots on it, you can easily run out
of resources ...

But with an usb->serial or usb->lpt converter you can connect much more
devices to such a board. And perhaps it is possible to supply your
display over the usb cable with the needed power ...

just my two euro cents...
