If I may make a suggestion, get a Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 2040u, if you
can find one. It's the nicest CRT I've ever seen. AG screen,
2048x1536, can be color matched and contains a two-machine USB KVM switch.
I've seen them going for ~$100-150 in good condition. They're *heavy*
though, so if you can get it close-by, it would be a big savings.
