i wanted some advice about getting this LCD monitor i saw which is really cheap and i want to get rid of my old crappy Hitachi CM615. http://www.dcomponline.com.au/productview.asp?proid=7653 i dont really care if there are better monitors available just something that is good enough.
Well, you're comparing two different things, LCD and old CRT, of course LCD is the winner here... I guess it's okay, it's a very cheap LCD you got there.
I would suggest getting a 23 inch LCD HannsG or HannsFree which is cheap with 1080p HDMI
I would suggest a 22" 1680x 1050 just becuase it should be in the same price range as that 19". Anything over that will cause lag unless you have a decent video card.
