i've never had to buy this seperately, but can i buy ANY kind of monitor?

i was thinking about this one http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8268466&productCategoryId=abcat0509000&type=product&tab=2&id=1170290375913#productdetail

plus, i was gonna install leopard on it. good idea or not?
i've been hearing mixed reviews on leopard on older macs. some people tell me i should just get tiger. its running panther right now.

That screen should work just fine.

Whether Leopard is a good idea depends on the spec of your G4.

stick with tiger. upgrade or max out the ram would be best. also what kind of video card is installed, does it have vga or dvi?
