I just upgraded my video card from a Voodoo 4 32meg card to a Voodoo 5 64meg card and now i'm looking into purchasing a new computer monitor.

I have a Gateway v700 and I don't think the monitor is up to par in displaying what the Voodoo 5 is capable of.

I'm not looking to spend a lot of money, but would like some ideas on what kind of monitor i should be looking for.

If there be one of them who does not follow the way of the Snitzil, let that one go and do not throw bowling balls at them.

I don't really know what size monitor you are looking for, but I got a 19 inch KDS Avitron over the summer at Best Buy. It cost me $299.99 plus tax after the $70.00 rebate check came back. It has a Sony Trinitron tube in it. I have had great luck with such monitors. My last Dell computer had a Trinitron monitor and now this one. Happy shopping!

If your on a budget, Samsung monitors are a fantastic deal. Whatever you get make sure it has a true flat screen...it makes a huge difference.

I went with ViewSonic but Sony is great too.

I have a Viewsonic (E700 I think) at work, and I love it. Great clarity.
