comment Touchscreen over Ethernet (with video?)
cat5 only has 8 leads, which is exactly how many you need for VGA. The only way you are going to fit USB on there too is if you digitize both over some higher protocol(e.g. TCP/IP). If there's some box out there that does it plan on spending more then $200.
