I have got rid of my 15" LCD laptop and am now in the process of
building out an OpenBSD based desktop.

Would love to hear all your opinions on getting a new monitor, in terms of:

do you need more than 1280x1024 resolution
DVI vs. normal HD15 conenctor

I will be sitting in front of this thing for at least a few hours
every day, up to 10-12 hours per day.

bonus question: best video card for 2D work?  I do no real 3d stuff,
just lots of Mozilla windows and xterms.  Under $70 is the price range
for an AGP card.  Have seen 64MB Radeon's for about $70.
