I had a couple Proview CRT's, pretty sturdy, but they are very generic, they are also labeled as KWD or something else at different stores. But Proview CRT's have lasted me YEARS without a single hitch, I have no idea about their LCD's though.

Well the Proview LCD monitor says it uses 1680 x 1050 does that mean my video card in settings gotta go up to that cause it doesn't or will it just view as 1680 x 1050 anyways?

No, that means that if your video card can support 1680 x 1050, you can view in that resolution, but you don't have to.

Proview (aka KDX i think) is one of many generic monitor brands. They're okay but definitely not as good as a Sony or a Samsung.
I know the monitor you're talking about and it's not a very good deal at that price. You'd be much better off purchasing a Samsung 226BW. Excellent monitor and almost the same price. The contrast ratio, response time, brightness, and overall quality of the panel are much better on the Samsung monitor--I have it and it's great!
