Default 17" monitors?

Those **** 19" and 21" ones don't fit on my desk (it's got a little hovel thing for the monitor). Any good suggestions (for a budget =D)?

A hovel thing? Like a mount? It won't fit anything but a 17"..?

I guess I would go with this, but it's nearly the same cost as 19" monitors.

Most of the ones I see on newegg are fullscreen, but I saw this one widescreen one: Newegg.com - AOC 717Vwx Black 17" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 5000:1 - LCD Monitors

I would just suggest you use a different desk. That is very tiny. If you don't have another, remove that bit on the top or buy a new one. I guess if you aren't a gamer, it doesn't matter much though.

Edit: I guess hikari beat me. Go with his. It is cheaper and a more well-known brand.
