Default Monitor Frames Per Second

HI, I have finally got my computer parts from, but am still missing an important part; the monitor. I planned on buying a used Dell monitor from a store locally for $49.99. But, as I walked in i realised this was a hole in the wall piece of **** place. Therefor, not a very trustworth place. Anyway, I need to know decent specs for a CRT monitor, because he did say what the specs were but I don't no jack about them. So i would appreciate any help here as I need to get one VERY soon. Thanks.

I would suggest a Viewsonic 19" or 21" flat screen CRT. They are great monitors and last a long long time.

If he was going to buy a used CRT for $49 I doubt he's ready to spring for a brand new 21"...

The brands that echo mentions tend to be good. Go to the site he linked and search for (or navigate to) CRT monitors. Read the reviews on the monitors by those brands and you should get all of the info you need to know.

In fact, just click here and use the search criteria on the side to enter price range and size.
Yes, but no sprinkles. For every sprinkle i find, i shall KILL you.
