The IBM PowerDisplay 17 and PowerDisplay 20 are fairly decent (and 
usually cheap from my sources) monitors that'll handle just about 
anything.  You might also check in to the 17" monitor that Power 
Computing shipped with some of their systems - it has a VGA and set of 5 
BNC connectors on it, and is probably available for a reasonable price.
