    LCD monitor?

    not really a Standard answer, if your using it for every day stuff, browing
    the net, word processing, spread sheets, blah blah blah, then almost any LCD
    should do the trick. my recomendation is to find one with a resolution your
    comfortable with, I've seen so many people who buy a new 17" or 19" LCD
    monitor, but run it in a low resolution because they say everything is to
    "small" on the screen, but it looks like crap. you shoudl always run an LCD
    in it's native resolution. now,if your playing games on this, the biggest
    thing to check is refresh rate (how fast each pixel refreshes) now this can
    also be misleading because it can be rated several different ways. lastly,
    might want to check up on the dead pixel policy of the monitor each
    manfacture has their own policy (some say 3 dead pixels gets you a new
    monitor, others say 6, others say X amount of color and B&W) hope some of
    this helps
