O.K. - so let's talk about monitors - I'm looking at LCD monitors. I've never really looked into that much - last time I priced a system a basic LCD was $500+ minimum (out of my budget).
I would want a 19" - 22" screen for under $250. I would only consider widescreen in the 21" - 22" range. I would like it to be as energy efficient as possible. Also, I notice that several come with speakers built in - that would be a feature I would NOT want!
Like I said, I've never really looked into these screens - so I don't know what to look for as far as brightness, contrast, refresh, etc.
Also, I don't know which brands are good buys and which are stay away from's.
