Touchscreen and Arduino

I've seen where you can use touch screens with Arduino, I havent used Arduino before and seeing if it would work for what i'm trying to do, Here's a breif of what i'm trying to do: A touch screen that has buttons that turns on/off devices that run off of 12V, and be able to go to another window on the touch screen that would display data from sensors, "Volts, temp, that sort of thing. I have a Total Control Mini Touch screen, I don't know if i could get that to work with Arduino. If this is possible with Arduino then what components would i need? Thanks for any held or advise.

Do you have a link for that screen (data sheet would be good)...

No i don't have any data sheet for the screen, that's why i was thinking about just discarding it and using another one.
