New system specs need input

Soon I will be building a new system. It will be my first one that I have built from scratch. I would like some feedback on the specs and I would like opinion on what you guys think is the best 19" flatscreen.
Here's the specs:

Motherboard Asus A7V133
Processor Thunderbird 900MHz Socket A
Ram PC-133 256MB SDRAM
Sound Card SoundBlaster Live Value
Video Card Radeon 32MB DDR
Hard-drive 40gb Quantum 100/7200
DVD-ROM Pioneer 16x DVD/40x CD

I would like to spend not much more than 500 dollars for a 19" flatscreen. What is the best one? I am currently looking at the KDS, Mitsubishi, Sony or Samsung.

Thanks for your time,

  1. I love the KDS ones. I don't know how much they're running everywhere now, but had them for around 440 last I looked. Second choice would be the samsung. Sony is, of course good, but I think you pay about 100 bucks extra for their name with no difference in quality.

  2. I would recommend the NEC MultiSync FE950.

  3. Pay special attention to the way you install your pci sound cards and read the manual......seems most people don't bother. Your sound blaster card needs to go into slot 3. I prefer any monitor which uses a samsumg tube. Nice choice of a hard drive where did you decide on that? Most peole are all geeked about the perforance of the ibm but the quantum actually nudges it in performance (however a bit louder). Here is a link to a page in where I uploaded a snapshot of hdd tach 2.61 using that it to toms test of the ibm.

    A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing!
