RE: LCD Monitors

Assuming your budget allows, I would definately go with a widescreen vs a standard screen. I have a 20" dell lcd (2 years old), great picture, etc. etc., but I've found it just isn't wide enough to get two "large" programs open at once (i.e. two Word documents side by side, two Excel docs, etc.).
