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.

Peace...  Sridhar
