Alex, that's assuming he's got a HDMI input... as the expansion board only supports DVI-D (HDMI) which is digital.  VGA, etc. is analog.  Sure, it only takes a few resistors to make a cheap D/A for VGA but there aren't any drivers and no support built in.  Even the Parallax Propeller can do VGA or composite (can't do HDMI) but it is a shame that there is no support (on any of the expansion boards) for VGA.  So, it's either HDMI (try finding a 7 or 8" HDMI monitor) or LCD.  Why is it everyone has forgotten VGA/SVGA?  It goes from LCD straight to HDMI and a HDMI (DVI-D) to VGA converter is $$$ and HUGE (size) compared to the Gumstix.  What happened?
You state, "overo with tobi expansion will do vga/svga via a hdmi connector" but where is that connector?  Are you forgetting you're going from DVI-D to an analog signal?
