Default any reccomended monitors?

well, as of now i have a 15" crappy monitor and am thinkin of getting a new one. heres what i need...

about 17-19 inches (MAYBE a little bigger)
no CRT i dont have enough room.
good responce time
high quality
DVI preferred

money doesnt really matter that much but i would like to keep it reasonable but i want to know if the Apple Cinema Display 20" will work with a windows computer. cuz if it does i might consider it.

i plan on using this monitor for a long time , atleast for four years so i dont want to cheap out like i did on the one i have now.

thx

Benq makes top quality monitors, but if ur looking for something a little less expensive, you can check out something like a hyundai imagequest q17, or a less expensive benq. They are all good.
