Yeah, flat panel prices are really coming down.

I bought a Viewsonic Vp2000s off of eBay for $400. I just got it today 
and set it up, and it is pretty good. Alot of space and quality for 
$400. I just have some reservations with the picture quality versus my 
SGI 1600SW, but I am running the 3dlabs Oxygen VX-1 1600SW card still, 
which dosent have DVI, so the Viewsonic is running through the analog 
HD15 connection.

I wonder how much better it will look with DVI-DVI? At this point, the 
Viewsonic is alot brighter, but the 1600SW has better photo quality and 
much less pixelation (but it is digital-digital).

The idea is to find another Viewsonic VP201/2000 and run them side by 
side. Now that will be nice.
