The touch screen digitizer or the actually lcd screen? It's 2 layered, the outer glass you touch is the digitizer and under that inside the phone is the lcd screen.

You can pick one up on ebay here GENUINE SAMSUNG GALAXY ACE S5830 TOUCHSCREEN DIGITIZER | eBay

And there are a few walk throughs on youtube here Samsung S5830 Galaxy Ace reparatie handleiding - YouTube

Ignore the middle bit of the video,concentrate on the beginning and towards the end.

Just ignore the middle bit about taking the motherboard apart. You just need to know how to remove the cover at the begining and how to take the digitizer off about 3/4's of the way through.
