I have a compaq right now, I just need a faster CPU....I found a great dell I'm thinking about buying (but I don't need a monitor). Would there be a conflict by having a compaq monitor and a dell cpu? Stupid question I know. Thanks.

Shouldn't be a problem.
If you go into a computer lab at the college I go to. There will be twenty different brands of computers and not one of them has a monitor(Also 20 different) and not one of them matches the machine for brands.
The pissy thing is that if you go into the admin building they all have matched computers and 19 inch flatscreens. It's really nice to know where my tech fee is going.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

It doesn't really matter that you have a different to CPU to a monitor. 99% of monitors should work with any modern CPU's, also most PC peripherals like monitors are PNP (Plug and Play) which automatically detects your hardware settings and installs the correct drivers so that you don't have to worry about things like installation or setting it up etc.
I have a AMD Athlon 450 mgz processor using a Sony Multiscan 110ES monitor, no problems whatsoever.

do any of u guys even know what a CPU is?heheh
Its not the whole box with the power button and cd drive. it a little black thing about the sise of ur fingernail inside the computer surrounded by black coolant area. And i understand that what ur assking is if u can use say an ADI monitor with a hewlet packard computer.
then yes u can.
