how bout a freaking CRT.. they are still the best if you get the good ones.. :
iiyama
Mitsubishi Diamond Pro series

Those 2 brand are probably the best CRTs u can buy. They are expensive tho, good iiyamas will go for at leasst 600$ new. The Mitsu DP 2060u can get for round 250-300 on ebay. the 2070 is more expensive. They are hard to find tho in general (good crts)

Then agian u can go LCD if u want, low MS the better.
