How modern do you mean ? My Octane used to be hooked up to an old Sony
LCD panel. I would hesitate to call it modern, but it's probably modern
compared to an Octane.

a) Octanes default to sync-on-green, but I believe that can be changed
   with /usr/gfx/setmon (specifically -s I believe).

b) There used to be a list of sync-on-green capable lcd panels around
   somewhere. No idea where it can be found now, but it's worth checking
   to see if your monitor does support it.
