For several of my workstations, I use 17" CRT's (purchased for less than
50$, or scrounged up) in 1280x1024 with 32mb ATI cards I got for 25$ a
pop. Works great for lots of 2d stuff, and I can even play quake!

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
LCD vs. CRT
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.
