A HDMI screen with touch should be usable.

The RPI CNC board needs to be on top of the Pi stack for the heat to be able to dissipate from the stepper driver.

I've already put the 7" LCD/TFT screen from element14 on the system and it works just fine.

One thing with the screen though that is not clear mentioned in its documentation. Connect power thru the USB connection OR the pins BUT NOT BOTH! Doing so will fry the screen controller.
