Default montor suggestions?

Since my new PC will be ordered on the 23rd i expect it up and running on the 28th, cuz i'll be working on finals, EOCTs and AP Exams so i'll need the time... but back to the subject... i need a monitor, preferably CRT... need a good monitor to see Vista's new improved Aero UI, hopefully like 200 american dollars

I would suggest getting an LCD monitor instead of a CRT.

how about this one? It's affordable, comes with DVI cable, plus this model has buttons in the front instead of the side to make things a lot easier.

Newegg.com - Hanns·G JW-199DPB Black 19" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

i want to get this when i have the money, but first i need a job, which is hard sense we r in a recession.

Thats a fine monitor as well however the 19inch wide is not much more either. Still both should play at 1440x900 res.
